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.

Everything suddenly seems so damned trivial...

by Learning2Fly on December 17, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Like so many others, I am having a difficult time feeling festive at this point in the holiday season...

I find myself holding my sons a little closer and recognizing that having my family and my sons love is a million times more important than anything material that "Santa Clause" could bring.

Instead of prettily wrapped packages, I simply pray for healing and peace for us all.
