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.

Lift Me (Annette Redmond Walters - Lafayette, LA)

Look into my eyes
tell me what you see
Look beneath the lies
tell me what will be
Listen to my cries
help me off my knees
Listen to my "whys"
help me find the key 
Lift me to the skies 
teach me how to flee
Lift me from the ties 
teach me to be free

Look into my fears 
tell me what is real 
Look beneath my tears 
tell me how to deal 
Listen while I'm here
help me to reveal 
Listen while I'm near
help me to be healed
Lift me from the smear 
teach me what to seal
Lift me and appear
teach me how to feel
