A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

MH17. I pray for Jenny's son.

Jenny, her husband and her mother died today in the Malaysian plane who was shot down above Ukraine. I knew Jenny as a costumer. She was the owner of Asian Glories, my favourite restaurant in The Netherlands. Her husband was an exquisite chef. She was a good friend of one of my best friends. I got to share some good laughs with her the many times I went to her restaurant with my friend.

She was dedicated, hard working, vibrant and a great business woman.

Their son is devastated. And so is my friend.
