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.

Big Boys Do Cry (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)
Stone cold tears on Tuesday
My fears are bathing my skin
Monday didn't go as planned
They say it's a man's world
If so, the universe has little to offer
Life is full of destinies unfulfilled
Yet my heart won't hold back
My heart can't hold back
If i cry, it's because I love life
What is my spirit without family?
What is my soul without harmony?
Inside all of us is a design to grow
Yet my future is malnourished
Being a man, there is no space to breathe
If love gets away from me, what then?
I think of the human condition
A life fit to live honestly
A journey that becomes more than man
All we are promised but never obtain
It's sad to watch the sun go down
