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.

Can six words HEAL the world?

by Dhani on September 18, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This is a repeat Memoir (the original read 'Can six words CHANGE the world?). Considering the essence or raison d'├ętre of Larry's website ('Six Words That MOVE the World', right Larry?) I was surprised at such a feeble amount of response from memoirists who regularly comment and/or give good backstory, like myself, on this board.

By the by, I'm with the BLUES BROS.: 'On a Mission From God.' My favorite atheist is JESSE VENTURA.
