The Louisiana Social Pledge
We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

What?! (Adam John Schexnayder-Crowley, LA)
Isn't it an oxymoron?? That everyone's reality is truth but not everyone's truth is a reality. Marching to the beat of a 9-to-5 with the rhythm of a stay-at-home mom. Life is only relative to circumstance. But don't make your circumstance your conclusion. Live to die another day, but die to live another day. How can we be so many things and nothing at the same time?? A mid-winters nightmare can be another persons midnight summer's dream. Yet, all the while we are changing by staying the same. And when I thought I had it all figured out, I got my red-penned essay back: "Nice try." The words so taunting. As if I didn't know that already. Relativity is the key to survival. But who needs to survive when reality is not truth??
