The story behind the book
In author's own words

Many months ago, the "Computer Scientist" / "Economist" / "Investment Strategist" roots ingrained in me since the first day of my career were hard at work. I was "financial modeling" the effects of the pandemic on future GDP growth rates, and on specific sectors, to determine opportunities in the commodity, credit and equity markets.
 
As I was analyzing daily Covid data from my home state of Vermont, I read a solicitation by the VT Department of Health for submissions of media material for their OurShotVT campaign to encourage good health and vaccinations to rid communities of Covid.
 
So I decided to take a pause and a deep breath from my inner nerd, to step back from what I loved doing (and have been doing for more than 30 years), and to think to myself: "How can I help?"
 
After all, for those familiar with Myers-Briggs, I am of character INTJ, a highly unlikely candidate to produce a public video or other typical media material.
 
As I was determined to do my part, I decided to dedicate a few weeks to write an inspiring poem relating to how the pandemic has affected me emotionally, with a positive and optimistic outlook for the future.
 
Hence SmileRise was born.
 
After I submitted it to the VT department of Health media campaign, I immediately received an email saying they absolutely loved it, and asking me if I would provide my consent for them to use it; how to use a poem in a media campaign was still uncertain to them. Nevertheless, as I wanted to help, I naturally said yes.
 
As more and more people read it and appreciated it, I was also asked to provide a voice reading of it. I did so.
 
Next, I was asked to possibly do a YouTube release of the poem. Again I did so.
 
Let me reiterate, all very uncomfortable tasks for an INTJ introvert...
 
Finally, to cap it all, the idea of a concise hardcover poem book was born, featuring both the poem and an expressive Prologue to describe events, people and circumstances, primarily in Vermont, that inspired the poem.
 
Before I knew it, my little detour has added-up so far to numerous months of my time. To make it worthwhile, I decided to go ahead with the completion and publishing of the poem book, and to donate 50% of related net proceeds to local and global health charities.
 
So far, two such charities have been selected:
the Bennington Free Clinic, and
socially responsible health-sector focused students at EdSeed, a crowdfunding platform that funds top students in troubled regions of conflict (such as refugees) who have no resources to fund their continued education.
 
The book is published and I feel great that I may make a difference; a difference for those who read it and may identify with the feelings expressed in the Prologue and the poem, and a difference in the lives of those whose health and wellbeing may benefit from the health charities that will benefit from the book.
 
The bigger question now is, will I ever be able to go back again to my nerdy number crunching/modeling/finance/investment strategy self again;
now that I have projected the poet in me?
 
Right now, the great feeling associated with making a difference takes a precedence over answering that question...

Book and Poem Background

SmileRise - A very short poem is a hardcover book comprised primarily of the poem SmileRise, in addition to a Prologue written by the author describing philosophies, events, places (primarily in New England - Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts), encounters, people and stories that acted as major inspiration for the poem.
 
SmileRise is a poem of our times, (but yet transcends time), pondering one endearing powerful expression, the smile. It is personal to the author, Bachar Samawi, and yet universal, as many feelings expressed in the poem are also shared by others.
 
A Prologue written by Samawi precedes the poem. It sets the stage for some of the events, places, circumstances, people and smiles that have inspired the poem. The geographic setting is primarily New England, with a focus on Southern Vermont. The reader is transported through the author's eyes, mind, heart, palate and 1991 Jeep, to experience his passion for nature, bookstores, pastries and cappuccinos, leading him to unforgettable and immortal smile encounters.
 
SmileRise poem itself consists of three free-form verses (despite the rhyming nature of the last verse), a cinquain reflecting on the past, a sestet reflecting on the present and a cinquain reflecting on the future; all relating to the extraordinary times of 2020-2021. Such times have caused so many smiles to disappear from plain view, but ultimately, a SmileRise is ushering in.
 
SmileRise poem was shortlisted for complimentary use by the Vermont department of Health's OurShotVT campaign, while author & publisher have committed to donate at least 50% of net proceeds from SmileRise to local and global health organizations.

" ***** 5 out of 5 Stars ***** A Gem!
This little book is proof that good things come in small packages. I first heard the poem online, read by Bachar Samawi and felt captivated by what I’d read.
I was delighted to learn that a prologue existed in the form of a book which I purchased directly from the author.
It’s a very quick read. I savored it in the amount of time spent drinking a cappuccino and enjoying a warm pastry.
The book captures so very beautifully how important it is to both give and receive smiles, how impactful they can be, how easy it is to make another’s day with kindness in the form of the universal language of smiling.
The book truly resonates and while small in size, is large in meaning.
As I read it, it brought back to my memory many smiles along the way that left a permanent imprint.
Overlay this with beautiful New England scenery and faces and places endearing to the author and you have a book that will leave you feeling the world is a better place.
Inspirational, Laughed Out Loud, Instagram-able Cover, Quick Read
I recommend this product. ",
AvidWalker, Literary Reader, Barnes & Noble Customer Reviews, July 15, 2021
 
" ***** 5 out of 5 Stars ***** Great Prologue & Poem
An interesting and uplifting read!
SmileRise takes you through a series of events and places in Southern VT & NH.
The people the author meets and their smiles (along with some pastries & cappuccinos) brighten one’s day and leave a lasting impact.
As our country emerges from COVID-19 & everyone wearing masks, the power of a simple smile has become even stronger.",
CTshopper, Amazon Customer Reviews, July 14, 2021
 
"I strongly recommend
B.Samawi's poem takes you to a much better world, a real world, not by fiction nor abstract thinking or aspirations but through a subtle connection with real people, unknown people through a smile, a smile rise. B.SAMAWI through this short but intense poem gives me a renewed desire to reread the French writer Proust.",

"***** 5 out of 5 Stars ***** The Most Powerful Words Ever Written About Smiles
SmileRise is beautifully written and heart warming and inspirational.
It is very well written and transported me to places, coffee shops historic towns and trails with wonderful stories that are inspirational for generations.
I recommend this product.",

He received several prestigious awards in American soccer and was voted as a Lifetime Member of the United States Soccer Federation in 2003.

Developed in Norway, the product has benefits to any player or coach. It is a perfect teaching tool, and should be part of any training regimen. Footballmaster is a terrific training aid to develop touch. It will benefit all players regardless of age, gender or level of play.

FEB / 01 / 2016

Bachar Samawi Innovations starts accepting customer Pre-Orders for Footballmaster, offering a limited time promotional discount prior to official USA launch date of May 1, 2016.

Footballmaster is a revolutionary patented invention, providing world-class training in soccer/football, targeting serious players from youths, to amateurs and professionals. Developed in Norway by football experts, Footballmaster is unlike anything in the market by providing incredible value in improving technical skills of players: passing, receiving and touch, which are at the core of the football game.

Indeed, 1000 touches can be realized in 30 minutes, which allows players to make tremendous progress in no time. Furthermore, feedback is instant: you pass or fail, and you measure your progress immediately, which is very unique and yet, very existing for players, amateurs and professionals. You develop focus, rapidity, flexibility; positive energy arises and the three most important components of the football game (passing, receiving and touch) can be mastered in a very short training time.

Mr. Hans Børge P. Lien, creator of Footballmaster, explains: "I developed Footballmaster because I, as a coach for 7-16 years old footballers, experienced that many footballers were struggling to develop adequate basic skills. Many players never developed a good pass or 1.touch and never experienced the joy of football before they quit. Many potential talented players quit before them or the coach really saw their true potential. At the same time, I learned that there aren't any good training devices on the market to help players develop this important basic skills in an effective way. So to help the coaches and players Footballmaster were born. That already skilled players can benefit hugely from training with Footballmaster is also very pleasant."

Being experienced football players knowing the challenges that amateurs and professionals may face at their different level of play, the Norwegian founders of Footballmaster have created two categories of products:

Footballmaster Pro is wider than Footballmaster Junior resulting in more lateral movement and ability to shoot even harder passes.

Therefore, Footballmaster can benefit to all players regardless of age or level of play. With Footballmaster Junior or Pro, soccer/football training becomes easy, can be done alone or in group, is effective and most of all brings fun, joy and pride of big achievements in passing and touch.

Footballmaster is a world class training tool for soccer/football players who want to take their game to the next level and become world class players. Do not miss the official USA launch date of Footballmaster: May 1, 2016.
