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.

Would you please speak to ME?

by StephanieTor on November 2, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I find myself asking this question everywhere I go. People see me and assume I won't understand them or can't speak for myself. I realize I look "different" and am difficult to understand, but ask what you're asking to me, not my caregiver, friend, etc. Try to understand my speech. If you can't, then say so and we'll get help. I'm not invisible.
