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.

What We Have Gained (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

Among all that has been lost 
This is what we have gained: 
A destiny still on its course 
A horizon colorful as tomorrow
A future as bright as the stars 
A motivation to see an end 
An inspiration to become more 
An imitation of our decisions 
A reason to believe in a source 

Among all that has been lost 
We still have another day here 
We still have love to empower 
We still have souls to enrich 
We still have each other's hand 
We still have free verse to give 

With any loss comes knowledge 
For the idea of loss is a mirage 
Every breath is an opportunity
