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.

SIX WORD » WAR

A new me. A new mission.

by Romanster on November 8, 2010   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr


I am a former dancer, but also a Veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. I served as a US Marine in Fallujah in 05-06. Since returning I have started Exit 12 Dance Company.

We are a company of dancers and military veterans. We perform contemporary and classical ballet to broaden the audience, open minds and hearts. Create works that deal with difficult themes, like war, and bring them to people dealing with wounds from those themes, whether emotional or physical. We want to appeal to people who don’t usually see dance or search it out to intrigue and surprise them. Our work combines observation, reality and hope.

In addition to performing around NYC to spread our message, we are headed to the Bronx VA Hospital during Veterans Day Week for a free performance for the Vets.
