Hi, everyone! I was wondering how many of you are going to be at the General Conference Session this summer in Atlanta, Georgia. I’m planning on being there, and I would love to meet all of you! I’ll be easy to find—I’ll be wearing my hat most of the time!
People ask me about my hat every once in a while. They ask, “Do you take that hat everywhere you go?” Actually, I do! And before I had that hat, I had another one that I took everywhere. Do you want to know why? It’s simple: To protect my head from getting too much sun!
A lot of people love to lie out in the sun and get a tan. That’s cool, except for the part about dramatically raising your chances of getting skin cancer. Experts say, “One blistering sunburn can double a child's lifetime risk of developing skin cancer.”
I don’t want ANY of you to ever get cancer. The sun is good for you, but getting burned is not. As North American summer rolls in, remember that you are also a part of nature that we should protect.
