Show a kid this video on the danger of a single sunburn

OUTDOOR SPORTS -- Many people will be hitting the sunny ski slopes this week, or maybe "coloring up" in a tanning booth, or planning for a winter getaway to a warm beach. 

Fine. Take your sunscreen and learn to cover up. 

Remember, your skin is like an elephant. It never forgets.

A single bad sunburn before the age of 18 doubles your chance of contracting malignant melanoma.

This video, "Dear 16-Year-Old Me," is worth sharing with any young person.
