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.

Turning Point (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

And then suddenly
Came a fork in the road
The path the to right seemed easy
I had done it before several times
I learned shortcuts, got bruises, and lost
If I chose that path again
I could get thrown backward
The path to the left looked safe, rewarding
Something I wanted, but feared
Everyone fears loss of what they gain
But to reinvent oneself is to make a turn
We either repeat or refresh
Book smarts is never prepared for the streets
At least that’s my point,
I was never prepared for the streets
