Morally Bankrupt

Some people are morally bankrupt and because of their insecurities they truly believe they can order other people around. We are all equal and entitled to a safe space. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021

The Company We Keep

If we knowingly associate with people who lack empathy and respect how can we be alarmed when they misuse and abuse us. We have to vet the people we allow into our space. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020
