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.

Now my sister, once my brother.

My older sister is a transgendered woman. She was born a man but always knew that she was supposed to be a woman. She has made an impact on my life that I can't even explain. I am more open-minded and understanding of the differences in people because of her. She is one of my best friends in the entire world and I love and respect that she is making the transition to live her life as she wants to. I wrote this memoir because I am so proud of who she is, was and will be.
