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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Kill them all. God won't mind.

Save the lectures please. In case you missed it on the news... Officials just arrested 254 suspects in an international child pornography operation. Of the 254 suspects, 231 live in the U.S. Of 123 children found, 14 are between the ages of 2 and 6 years old. Yes, TWO years old. of the 123 child victims, 110 were living with their captors in the U.S. These criminals were somebody's neighbor. Several were registered sex offenders. These are not the unfortunate 19 year olds that get labeled sex offender because their girlfriend was 17. These are the dregs and products of our society that should never be allowed in society again. The recidivism rate for true child predators? Sits right close to 100%. It falls just short only because the authorities don't catch everyone the second time around. Try picturing that two-year old being gang raped...with the camera rolling. Is the rapist any more guilty than the person behind the camera? Still believe in a prison sentence? I do not.
