"One day in art class probably in 3rd grade, we were all free-drawing and listening to the Beatles. A song came on everyone knew and before we knew it we were all up on our feet, singing and dancing with Ms. Mac.(1 on the tables) It was one of those moments of pure joy in your childhood that stays with you forever. DDS has given me plenty of those."
