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.

"But Jesus said, 'Suffer little children'"

by Staraj on November 22, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Terrible chain reaction car crashes in Texas Thanksgiving Day. Loss of life and multiple injuries. One boy provided a modicum of joy on this grim occasion with a simple, heartfelt gesture. He used the turkey that would have been the centerpiece of his dinner later that day to instead make sandwiches for the many others who also had their holiday plans tragically interrupted.

Thanks and Giving . . . were observed nonetheless.
