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.

Flood (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

How many times do I need to almost drown?                    
But here I am he left with soggy dreams
I thought God wouldn’t destroy with water
Yet the tide is receding, mud covering me

But yet I choose to rebuild on a risky foundation
I am no fool, and, you can’t run from nature
When it your time to sink, grab hold to your rock
Let the waters wash you clean this time

Will you start a new life after your baptism?
It is what we do next with our flooded souls
That’s the true opportunity to change
To understand the promise of the rainbow
