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.

Our dad still doesn't know how.

The 23rd marked 2 years since my twin brother died. Our dad didn't find out until a little over a year ago, but he doesn't know how he died, he's never asked. I'm sure he has a couple of ideas but he's never asked and no one has had the heart to tell him.
