Class of 99, Wear Sunscreen.
This is true to fact. You will realize this much later in life. He’s right just wait it all changes.
“Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young“, commonly known by the title “Wear Sunscreen“, is an essay written as a hypothetical commencement speech by columnist Mary Schmich, originally published in June 1997 in the Chicago Tribune. The essay, giving various pieces of advice on how to live a happier life and avoid common frustrations, spread massively via viral email, is often erroneously described as a commencement speech given by author Kurt Vonnegut at MIT.
The essay became the basis for a successful spoken word song released in 1997 by Baz Luhrmann, “Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)“, also known as “The Sunscreen Song“. The song reached number one in Ireland and the United Kingdom and inspired numerous parodies.
