Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 27, 2014
This week thousands attended the Los Angeles tribute to Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard in celebration of his life’s accomplishments and ever increasing use of his works around the world.
The celebration was held at the Shrine Auditorium, a location where L. Ron Hubbard lectured to an audience of six thousand on August 10, 1950 shortly after the publishing phenomenon of Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, the New York Times and international bestseller.
Featured in this year’s presentation and screened around the world was the completion of the Ideal Pacifica Bridge on L. Ron Hubbard Way in Los Angeles, CA. This signified the full realization of Mr. Hubbard’s original vision for Los Angeles Scientology organizations: The Ideal Organization of Los Angeles, the new Ideal American Saint Hill Organization, the Ideal Advanced Organization of Los Angeles and the new Scientology Information Center on Hollywood Boulevard’s Walk of Fame.
Mr. Hubbard’s life works are represented by the millions of lives he has helped improve around the world and almost 5,000 awards and recognitions in acknowledgment for a lifetime of creative and humanitarian service.
Born in Tilden, Nebraska on March 13th, 1911, the son of Naval Officer, L. Ron Hubbard’s adventures and travels began at an early age by becoming the nation’s youngest Eagle Scout at 13 in 1924. By the age of 19 he had traveled over 250,000 miles before the advent of air travel throughout America, the Caribbean and the Far East. These travels brought Mr. Hubbard fact to face with many different cultures where he witnessed widespread social degradation.
L. Ron Hubbard was one of the most prolific writers of the 20th century. His early writing career funded his continued research into the mind and the nature of man, only interrupted by his military service during WWI where he saw action both in the Atlantic and the Pacific. In 1948 Mr. Hubbard served as a Special Officer of the LAPD which was the basis for his discoveries on the cause and prevention of crime now a part of his humanitarian programs.
Mr. Hubbard’s research over several decades culminated with the release of Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health¸ and several years later came his founding of the Scientology religion. Continuously researching in order to help his fellow man, L. Ron Hubbard later developed humanitarian programs for drug rehabilitation and detoxification, criminal reform, learning, literacy and his common sense guide to better living – The Way to Happiness – which have touched close to a billion lives in some 170 nations.
