Children used to make drawings in school about the environment. Remember Smokey the Bear? But what are they drawing nowadays?
Do you dare wear short-shorts? If you’re my age and can pull off short-shorts, all the power to you. If you’re a young woman with long tanned legs you want to show off, all the power to you. But please — let’s not dress our young girls in short-shorts.
