Young Voices Creating a Bright Future on International Day of Happiness
The Church of Scientology Nashville with The Way to Happiness Association of Tennessee observed International Day of Happiness with a special youth presentation from a diverse group of Nashville children.
“Youth Voices: Creating a Brighter Future” was a celebration of World Happiness Day at the Church of Scientology Nashville. Sponsored by The Way to Happiness Association of Tennessee and The Way to Happiness Kids Club of Nashville, the program included words from young people age 5 to 13 who spoke about making a brighter future.
Anna, age 5, opened the program by welcoming those attending. Two 6-year-olds spoke of how all people should work together for a better future. Jazzy, 11, invited the children in the audience to join The Way to Happiness Kids Club.
During the panel discussion, 13-year-old Yusuf, 9-year-old Omaran, and 10-year-old Celia answered questions posed to them about how to set a good example and remain true to yourself despite those who may try to bully or harm you.
The Way to Happiness Association promotes The Way To Happiness—the common-sense moral code written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. The 21 precepts of The Way to Happiness are all based on the fact that one’s survival depends on the survival of others. Simply following these precepts result in a happier life.
Each child attending the event was given a copy of a poster illustrating the 21 precepts that they can use as a guide in making decisions that will result in a happier, more moral life. They also received their own copy of The Way to Happiness booklet.
Since 2013, the United Nations has celebrated the International Day of Happiness on March 20 as a way to recognize the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world. The United Nations encourages schools, businesses and governments to join in the celebration of the day.
The Scientology religion was founded by author and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard. The first Church of Scientology was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 and the religion has expanded to more than 11,000 Churches, Missions and affiliated groups, with millions of members in 167 countries.
