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.

Life on a Train (Jason M. Smith-Lafayette, LA)
Why is it you choose to sit alone,
Looking like you were made of stone?
Here are people just like you,
Looking like they are so confused.
You could be sitting with a new friend,
But then it is your chose in the end.
A look a nod a simple smile,
Would make your trip seem less then a mile.
You will never know,
All it takes is just a hello.
