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.

Found proof, well that really sucks.

My teacher, that oversees my government curriculum, and I got in a discussion about discrimination laws and she made the statement that people can't legally be fired for anything other than breaking a code of conduct, to which I pointed out that it's legal for me to be fired in 34 states for being transgender, and 29 if I was only gay. She kept arguing, saying that there is no way that is legal to the point where she ended up saying that if I can prove it with a valid source that I'll get EC points (which would put me at a 4.0). I found them within 10 minutes...
I don't know whether to be proud of my knowledge or disgusted that it's actually true.
