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.

Facing the Past (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

Look into the mirror
Years are facing you
Have you been counting?
Not only the days
But also the mistakes
The pain you have left covered
Your heart wrapped in a blanket
No one moves forward with pity
What are we to make of failure?
What does success really look like?
Manifestatons of knowledge emerge
But all our trials are experimental
Insanity was often the result
Yet our past repeats
