ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA, US, January 10, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — January 21st, 2019 marks the 34th year of the Nation’s longest-running parade – the St. Petersburg’s “MLK DREAM BIG” PARADE. Twenty one youth from The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay will walk with their float in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who exemplified the virtues detailed in the book, The Way to Happiness.
L. Ron Hubbard author of The Way to Happiness, said, “In all times and in most places, Mankind has looked up to and revered certain values. They are called the virtues. They have been attributed to wise men, holy men, saints and gods. They have made the difference between a barbarian and a cultured person, the difference between chaos and a decent society.”
Hate crimes have been on the rise since 2015 when 102 were reported and 55.9% of these crimes were racial, according to the Florida State Attorney's office. 2016 saw yet another increase by about 33% per a report by the FBI.
