Gift of a Genie

If I were ever in possession of a genie and I am granted seven wishes.  My first wish would be the abolition of all forms of racism and prejudice.  My second wish would be to end disease and hunger.  My third wish would be to end all wars.   My fourth wish would be for […]

A State of Helplessness

  Feeling powerless is very demoralizing.   It’s knowing what the fix is but realizing you are stymied and therefore unable to change the situation.   The human psyche is vulnerable.  We all feel pain, and joy.  Demoralizing others does not increase our influence and power, it diminishes it.  We are Gods unto ourselves and no […]

A Climate of Chaos

Injustice doesn’t occur in a vacuum.  They appear because of laws and practices that allow them to fester.  When there is no accountability and consequences people will act on their base instincts.  When we are disposed to believe in a system of hierarchy chaos ensues. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Common Sense

    If we approach life with vindication and purpose we are less likely to act on the lies we are taught and instead be introspective in our analysis of finding the truth.  It takes maturity to act in good faith and common sense. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Changing the Tide

  Giving up is never an option.  You have to be tenacious, and assertive about the actions you take.  Your journey is not linear, it is a progression towards elimination of the larger issue: demonization and systematic injustice. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Inhabiting Joy

Joy has to be our constant companion.  Without joy our lenses are shattered, we aren’t able to view things within the aperture of  truth.  When joy is present there is clarity. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Standing in Gratitude

    It is hard to stand in gratitude when your heart is thumping with pain.  It is in these  times that we have to decompress, breathe and apply self care before we self destruct.   We cannot create change in those who have no desire to change their ways.   Justice is never blind, […]

We are all Human

    Our journey on this Earth though short is full of endless possibilities.  We are born free and ought not to be subjected to the nefarious actions of those who think they have the right to restrict and suppress others because of their belief in the lie of superiority.   In every situation there […]


  We do not stand alone.  We stand on the shoulders of our ancestors, but for some of us who have had our identities stolen it behooves us to use the resources that are available so that we can have an awakening and a reconnection to our past.  Not knowing where you originated dwarfs who […]
