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. Read more about six.

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

Home? I never made it back.

Left NYC in 1960 & joined USAF in 1961. Provided almost continuous intel support about Vietnam until I finally arrived there in 1968. Spent 5-years in Thailand. Never went back to NY. Live in Hawaii. Is it because of the war or do I feel more comfortable with the peoples of the East?
