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.

Bomb and shooting threats, please stop.

by BecomingLuke on December 17, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Today there was a bomb threat at my school, putting us in lock-down for 2 hours

There have been threats made to my little sister's school about a shooting and bombs for Friday

My old school had a kid bring a gun to school today

Please, stop. I know it happens every year but this is getting ridiculous, I've had some kind of serious threat or action at my schools since grade 7.
