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.

July 5th is MY Independence Day.

I come out as a gay man in 1986, two years later, July 5th, 1988, I sat my parents down and come out to them. So, I remember that day as the first one of living truly authentically. PS: They had already figured it out and were totally accepting from the start.
