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.

Storm past but love will last.

by Steve__Anthony on October 31, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I posted this memoir about a year ago when I was going through some hard times.

This time is not about me. This time is about the millions upon millions who lost something or someone in the storm last weekend.

I sorry for your darkness, your new uncertainties, your pain and for what you've lost.

My thoughts and my prayers are with you tonight as you try to glue and repair what is broken. Be strong.
