Advice: Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)

Baz Luhrmann: Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)


The story behind Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen) is rather complicated. It was originally written for the Chicago Tribune by Mary Schmich in a column titled, "Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young" in June 1, 1997. She described it as the commencement address she would give if she were asked to give one. Wikipedia has the whole story over here. In these days of global warming, I don't think there's any better advice one can follow than to wear sunscreen, at least one with an SPF rating of 55. The rest of it is pretty wise, as well.
