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.

Triumphant Choices (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

When the rain clears
The heat simmers down
Working that 9 to 5 on repeat
The true test starts in free time
Are we too idle or go-getters?
There are choices, we are them
We are triumphant choices
Catalyst for change or the same
No shame when we rhyme with a name
Every Olympian was born human
It’s an amazing thing to see humans
Rise to the occasion, be triumphant
So in your free time make choices
Triumphant choices
