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.

I hope we didn't lose another.

Someone that I was in the hospital with posted "bye" as her Facebook status and hasn't responded to a post since. That was over 24 hours ago. I was never that close with her and haven't talked to her since we left the hospital over a year and a half ago, so it would be weird for me to reach out to her. I'm just worried. Someone I was in the other hospital with was just re-hospitalized last week too. I'm scared for everyone.
