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.

Whether it was coerced or not.

Torturous as it has been I have always respected my son's decision, whether it was coerced or not. If he is at peace or at least sure of what he is doing then I will live with it. I may never be completely satisfied that I did all I could to see him, or that I did not let pride or some other blinding emotions blur my perceptions. Of one thing I am certain I love my son and I am a better person for having lived and shared every moment of his lifetime.
