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.

Should be a pretty good hint...

by BecomingLuke on February 7, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

The fact that you just told an 18 year old kid that he has to go back to a public school and the blood instantly drained from his face, he didn't say a thing and just walked away should be a pretty good hint that it's not going to be good to send him back.
No kid should be so scared of going to school that they would rather drop out than go back.
And yet, I'm being sent back next week
