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.

Son's PIDD diagnosis isn't death sentence.

by notyouraveragegrandma on May 18, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My youngest son is 15 and is affected by a PIDD: Common Variable Immune Deficiency. This video was a reminder to all of us that having a Primary Immune Deficiency Disease is not a death sentence. The strength and courage of children affected will never cease to amaze me. This video makes me realize how proud I am of Devon and all he has overcome. I am blessed beyond words.
