St. Petersburg, Russia, July 11, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Volunteers from The Way to Happiness Association of St. Petersburg celebrated Russia Day by sharing copies of the nonreligious common sense moral code The Way to Happiness. And for good reason.
The lack of a moral compass is a common denominator in many of the social and personal issues that create stress and duress in people’s lives. It is what underlies corruption, crime, corporate greed and drug abuse—even divorce.
More than half of Russian marriages end in divorce and according to the Russian Public Opinion Research Center, 24 percent are torn apart by infidelity and another 16 percent by alcoholism or drug abuse.
So despite unseasonably chilly weather, wind and rain, the volunteers handed out hundreds of copies of The Way to Happiness and set up an easel on St. Petersburg’s Bolshaya Konushennaya St. where people so people could write down their favorite precept. They also gave them a second copy of the booklet to give to a family member or friend.
Written by author, humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard, the 21 precepts of The Way to Happiness can be applied by anyone of any faith.
The Way to Happiness Association is supported by the Church of Scientology St. Peterburg. The Church and its members are proud to share the tools for happier living contained in The Way to Happiness with all who also have the goal of a better world.
