Character Strength Story: When Dennis was three years old we had one of the first homes when entering the neighborhood and parked on the street.. Dennis and his twin brother Adam would greet the neighbors with a dance show standing on the roof of the family car. Naked of course. That care free, don't worry attitude lasted all his life and still makes us smile today. - Submitted by Donald, Dennis's Father
