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.

Calm (Jordan James Levers-Lafayette, LA)

And I'm calm
Untouchably separate from others' actions
Continuously giving love despite others' retractions
Unexplainable the sense of peace that follows presence
A powerful sense of self has taken up full residence
A flow reconnecting the soul to potential energies
Untapped centers of perceived external synergy
Asymmetry balanced within no longer limits me
Acceptance a voiceless, timeless remedy
I pass ethereal through the swords of imagined enemies
In my perception, long held perspective has shifted to one of constant movement
Acknowledging the inevitability of my imperfections, I embrace inner improvement
