Createspace

BAM




This was "by far" one of the most rewarding books that I have had the honor of writing on a variety of levels. The historical impact that sports have in today's society is a sprung from a template of legends. I truly believe if we have any hope of keeping the integrity of sports intact and preserving one of our precious jewels. 
The "leaders of the pack" must learn of these great legends and study their superior blueprint and take that torch that they left.  Money will come and go but legends live forever. Growing up as a kid in Columbia, Mississippi; I was blessed to witness the efforts of greatness in the world of sports. I hope this artful sketch inspires future sports prospects and aspiring poets to continue to tweak their moral compass into a more prudent fashion.




The overall theme of the book is "creative art," just as the ancient legends left their mark inside the walls of caves and on various other items fashioned in clay. I designed the book to have a velvet like texture particularly the middle strip, which has
symbolic pieces of a leather football and words scripted in gold.




Free Book Sample:


“Sweetness” played with heart and determination and for me the way he ran….was like he was saying something.
Poetry in Motion!

This is my interpretation of what he was saying….

I know you think I’m just a country boy from Mississippi and you wonder how I got here.
I tell you how…
Give me the ball #9…
Yes I came from the rough South and the blood of kings flow through my veins but this time I’m not on the cotton fields of Mississippi.
The picture isn't what you thought it would be but this is what is.

Move over critics take this stiff arm -- yes I went to what you call tiny Jackson State University stop trying criticize my potential and crush the hopes of those who aspire as me.
It’s not so much of where I came from its where I’m going, can’t you see?
I just crossed the 30 yard line…

Get off me middle linebacker you take this elbow to the chest, did you think I would stop because you seem bigger than me? Well let me tell you what you didn't see…my Heart!
I just crossed the 35…

Oh…you sent another one the same size? Did you forget that I graduated from tiny Jackson State as you often remind me? This is wisdom that anticipated you coming so move out of the way and take the other elbow, I have  community to inspire,
I’m crossing the 50…

Excuse me defensive back I understand your duty but you must understand you will not stop me, didn't you see Soul Train? My feet are quick watch this move…
I’m crossing the 40 into the 20…

Just me and you “free safety” your name has such humor, because you are free to watch me high-step into history with my true family of fans in one hand like I often carry and my fist high in victory!

Touchdown!





Home on leave few years back, visiting my old high school and  appreciating the 
Statue of Walter Payton, in which the field is now named after.

You will have to get the book to see the rest :)

If there ever was a time that our 21st century era of sports could benefit from golden history lessons, it is now. The ancient Epic of Gilgamesh reveal truths of great value from a legendary hero king, the epigrams from Marcus Martialis capture the heart of Roman gladiators & inspirational icon Nelson Mandela embraced sports with a wise gesture in the name of peace. Sweetness in Air by Favre metaphorically defines the heroic legends of those that inspired my life in the "Magnolia South."

The wise should consider their immortal efforts in their respective craft & approach challenges with heart, determination & will to succeed.

Aspiring poets also have a great opportunity to utilize the literary platform to inspire & heal where everyone can win....or decay where no one wins. Walter Payton, Brett Favre & Steve McNair won my respect & admiration for the great humanitarians that they are.
               


Thank You

Official Book Trailer - Philippine Dream "More Rice Jamal"



High Definition Wide Screen Version















A Victorious Life

Irish Rose singing "Amazing Grace"

Victorious is an understatement when it comes to Irish Rose! 
The story of her life will benefit millions of people around the world particularly those who deal with unimaginable daily struggles and no hope in sight. When many wanted to shove my mothers life under a rug and erase her from History, I am very grateful that the Creator of Life whispered to the ancient scribes saying: "Victory is Mine"!!!!
When the story of her life is released for the masses to see, they will see a woman, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, an aunt, a friend and a servant whose mission has been crowned by God.


The Honorable Bob Helfrich & Ms. Lucy Davenport

Very appreciative to the Honrable Bob Helfrich for reading a thank you letter that I wrote because I could not make it to my mothers special event because of my location in the Philippines.  The letter was read aloud before he handed my mother  her "Certificate of Completion".

The Letter: 

Honorable Bob Helfrich & Ms Lucy Davenport

Greetings from Philippines,

I am the son of Irish R Lowe and I have a photo for you that was taken at my first book signing in Mississippi. I am currently in the Philippines now on a mission to help many suffering people with broken spirits, broken homes and seemingly broken lives. As a US Navy Veteran I have organized many humanitarian events and now I am back in the Philippines again. I am sad that I cant be there for my mother and shake the hands that helped her but if I had a chance to speak this is what I would say.

I am very proud of my "Victorious" mother whom has journeyed through horrendous struggles yet victoriously overcame all odds. I give thanks to God for allowing your establishment to continue serving our community. The drug court program serves as a (block-"aid") for potential catastrophic human life. What is more precious than a human life and those who give service to them? You give people who are victim of bad choices or bad circumstances a chance to get it right! I am very grateful that you gave my mother Irish Rose Lowe That Chance! You should know that you have created a ripple effect that will have a global impact. Everywhere I go here in the Philippines and other countries like Africa and Europe....I will share my mothers story-and as we speak I am working on a book on her behalf that includes and highlights your efforts in straightening her jagged edges so she may have a better future. Furthermore, its not just her you have helped. You have helped me! Me knowing my mother was in the best program that is available eased my fears that a son has for his mother. Now I can focus on unleashing the gift that God has instilled in me. On behalf of all of the people that you have helped, seen and unseen. Thank You!

Very Respectfully,

Jamal

My mother preparing to sing "Amazing Grace"


Why did she choose to sing "Amazing Grace?"
The lyrics are her story...

"Amazing Grace"

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.
Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
                                                                            .....written by John Newton (1725-1807)


Stay tuned...........

Inspiring the future is always a rewarding feeling! Shalom from Makati, Philippines!


Enjoyed giving the kids their awards after a 2 month long season! They all asked me to be apart of their special moment. How could I refuse?


Enjoyed giving the kids their awards after a 2 month long season! They all asked me to be apart of their special moment. How could I refuse?


Always making time for the kids, they remind me of my youth when I had thousands of questions.



Perfect view of the Batangas Mountain's along with the kids awaiting to be awarded their trophy's.


What a joy it was to be apart of the finishing touch of hard work.


This season I wear #50 in honor of my parents surpassing the monumental age that I hope to reach and beyond. 50 symbolize joy, celebration, new beginnings & spiritual freedom. Thankful to God for great parents that wanted there sons and daughters to live a life of true freedom. Love You Peeps!! A small gesture of generosity that means a great deal. Like "More Rice Jamal"....

Great Appreciation of Asian Cultural Attire


Many people have asked me how do I continue to strive forward in a progressive manner having dealt with so many past challenges. 
"What is your Secret Jamal?" 
Love is my Secret! 
I entered Love in all equations of my Life and it motivated the ambition and desire to live through whatever 
challenge that I have faced.
It has not been easy by far but I offer that
Secret
to humanity. Enter Love in any equation and it causes an in dept research into problems that we face. Therefore tweaking overlooked blockades that stops the flow of progression.
Yes the problems will be challenging
but the earth will benefit from the fruit of 
Love and spin happily on its axis
and we will reap the kiss of True progression
from Heaven above.
That is my Secret.

can touch many hearts.

Serving in the United States Navy in 2008 onboard USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) was my first visit to the Philippines in the humanitarian relief effort of Typhoon Fengshen.
How could I forget that hot day in June. As we pulled into the South China Sea I could not believe the things that my eyes were seeing. Seeing people lose everything they had in this tragedy, their homes and families, reminded me of Hurricane Katrina in my country the United States of America.
So I made a promise to one day go back and visit the Philippines to myself and several of my Filipino Kuyas & Ates that I met while in the Navy. It is now 2013 and I fulfilled my promise and my life will never be the same.
Philippine Dream "More Rice Jamal"...reveals hard truths of daily living and hope for a better tomorrow. This inspired me to reconsider my lifestyle in my Great country of America.
I saw the Dream in their eyes and I saw the light of hope in their heart. I am blessed that the Creator of the Universe allowed a country boy like me from Columbia, Mississippi...to share to the world what this Dream is all about.

A true child of God! The lord has special people he us to spread his word locally and some on TV and then there are those who have to travel the hills through countries that others can’t go or are too afraid. You have the ability to speak different languages to spread abroad the good news about the King, at first it was Martin L King, and then on a little small town in Mississippi there was another king born, Author J R Lowe, Irish Rose baby!
