The Way to Happiness Association of Tennessee participated at the Metro event Parent University this past weekend.
“Love and Help Children,” is but one precept from the common sense guide The Way to Happiness, but it was with this in mind that volunteers from The Way to Happiness Association of Tennessee (TWTH-TN) participated in Parent University, an annual event put on by Metro Nashville Public Schools, where they distributed copies of the booklet to parents, teachers and children alike.
The Way to Happiness, which was written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard in the early 1980s, sparked a movement and has been reprinted and passed hand to hand to a wide variety of cultures and peoples. In Tennessee, The Way to Happiness Association has been spreading its message even further in recent months, and has no plans to stop anytime soon. Why? Organizers for the group say where it is distributed crime rates plummet, as proven by statistics.
"This book is based on common sense principles and acts as a moral compass,” says Judy Young, Director of The Way to Happiness Association of Tennessee, “when people read it, they are able to easily put the concepts in it into practice to live a better life.”
According to thewaytohappiness.org, “This code of conduct can be followed by anyone, of any race, color or creed and works to restore the bonds that unite humankind.” In the three decades since it was authored, 100 million copies of the book passed hand to hand.
TWTH-TN launched its campaign in 2009. During Parent University, hundreds of copies of the booklet were distributed. For more information, visit twthtn.org.
