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.

It takes one. It takes millions.

It takes one mind to gain a new perspective. It takes millions to connect through it and together make a progressive change.

I hope that the social unrest in my country finds a sensible, peaceful leader, and that people protest with wisdom and assertiveness.

It would be so sad if violence and greed shadow the higher aim.

It takes one. It takes millions. To heal my country.
