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.

A "prayer" for your Holiday Meal.

This has been around for a while. If you haven't read it, it is a great Holiday prayer.

"If you woke up this morning with more health than illness... you're are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week. If you never have experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation... you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are more blessed than 3 billion people in the world.If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world.If you have money in the bank, money in your wallet, and spare change in a dish somewhere, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.If your parents are still alive and married, you are rare - even in the United States.If you can read a billboard on the way to work or newspaper or a book - you are more blessed than over 3 billion people in the world who cannot read at all.If you can hold your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful, you are blessed because the majority can but most don't."
