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.

Would you change your national flag?

To what, in what way, why- there the sort of things I'm looking at. Perhaps you believe your country's flag is divisive or perhaps not inclusive of elements that warrant inclusion. I love the American flag, but loathe my own nation's (Australia) one.
