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.

Why Does It Hurt? (Jason Smith-Lafayette, LA)
Why does love have to be so hard,
I want to be honest but it must not be in the cards.
I thought you and I felt a connection,
Was it just a flitting affection?
Did you mean it when you said you had fallen,
Or was that just a mistaken calling?
Did I mess up any chance for us,
Was I hoping for to much?
I guess I must face the pain,
I must have been too vain.
I hope that we can still be friends,
Keep in touch until the end.
Don’t think I would take you for granted,
Even though my life is frantic.
I was hoping to be your love,
To see you light the heavens above.
I will be here as your friend or mate,
I do see you in my life because it is my fate.
