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.

The Eye of the Hurricane (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Let my winds calm your dreams
Uncertainty circles around us
I hold onto you in the sun’s beams
We have time of love to discuss

It seems destruction in near
Yet it is not out end in any way
Debris flies through our tears
No future do the lost lives say

The storm in almost over now
Misery will settle like the rain
We will survive and wonder how
We learned from our pain

I am the eye of the hurricane
Rest inside my soul, let fear wane
