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.

I don't understand this 'green' stuff

by thepariah on June 19, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr


I MUST be a bit silly because I can’t fathom all this green stuff.

We stop building dams and power stations and make water and electricity more expensive. We shut down the sustainable logging industry and import more timber. We truncate our irrigated agriculture and import more food.

Now it seems we must pay our fishers to stop fishing and import most of our fish.

This all results in a loss of productive taxpaying jobs that are replaced with unproductive taxpayer-funded jobs.

Then we import more people to share in our diminished productive capacity to produce the staples of life.

I think I will have to go back to one of these progressive schools and learn about this green stuff.
