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 Price Paid For Love (Madison Holland-Lafayette, LA)

When idols fall
Things are revealed 
To be less than ideal
Swaying on shaky pedestals
Lowly roses unfold and shine their light
Truth rises, lies sink
And everything is unfair once more
The universe straightens itself
Puts the ants in their proper places
"How dare you have a love so great"
It frowns and intimidates
The ants tremble in fear
Love is of greater worth than everything 
And if this is the price we must pay 
Then so be it
For the heights of emotional connection and security
Oh the toll that is exacted
The ants will always be poor
So long as they cling to love
