2017 Year in Review - The Way to Happiness Association of Tennessee

PressReleasePing - January 02, 2018 -The Way to Happiness, a book written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard in the early 1980s, is comprised of 21 precepts, each one predicated on the fact that one’s survival depends on the survival of others—and that without the survival of others, neither joy nor happiness are attainable. In the three decades since it was authored, more than 115 million copies of the book passed hand to hand, thus inspiring the international movement which is spreading throughout Nashville, TN. Volunteers for The Way to Happiness Association of Tennessee (TWTH-TN) began the year by creating an action plan to visit specific neighborhoods in the Nashville area, as it has been proven that when this booklet is distributed in a specific zone or area, crime in that area then plummets. For World Interfaith Harmony Day, a large gathering was organized to promote peace and mutual respect among religious peoples, with many religious and interfaith leaders participating. To honor World Environment Day, volunteers followed up on an action promise to clean up the city from last year’s “It’s Your City – Green It Up” event and took to the streets even with inclement weather in the forecast. Next, TWTH-TN was at a local Father’s Day celebration distributing booklets and speaking with people about why it is important to “Honor and Help Your Parents,” as one of the precepts in the booklet mandates. For International Friendship Day, TWTH-TN worked with the Nashville Church of Scientology to organize a large event to bring people together. A diverse crowd joined together to learn about one another and forge true friendships by taking part in guided dialogue. In October, volunteers were welcomed to the twentieth annual Intertribal Powwow hosted each year by the Native Cultural Circle (NCC) of Clarksville. There, they distributed hundreds of booklets to Native Americans and others attending. TWTH-TN is making a true impact across Tennessee and reaching other parts of the world.
