Wear Sunscreen

I've heard about this phrase for quite sometime now and finally got to know what it actually means. In fact a fellow Asha runner's blog is titled on similar lines as well.

Wear Sunscreen' was written by Mary Schmich, a columnist for the Chicago Tribune. Originally printed in a newspaper column, this now famous poem was e-mailed around the world, identified as an M.I.T. commencement speech by author Kurt Vonnegut. The false attribution was never explained, but the poem became an Internet favorite; it was later set to music and released on an album by Australian director Baz Luhrmann.

The article from Schmich was titled "ADVICE, LIKE YOUTH, PROBABLY JUST WASTED ON THE YOUNG".
