Famous Graduation Speech

With graduations upon us, I am remembering "Wear Sunscreen."  If you have not been introduced to it, read below.

Written by Mary Schmich and published in the Chicago Tribune in 1997, "Wear Sunscreen" is urban legend for graduation speeches, and Baz Luhrmann produced a song "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)."  Listen to the Takeaway's  "Pomp In These Circumstances: 'Wear Sunscreen' and Other Advice for Grads,"  John Hockenberry's interview with Mary Schmich on her graduation advice is excellent.
