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.

Dear Homeland Security,

We routinely hear about the wanton waste of funds that are allocated through your organization. It angers many
of us, yet we realize the unfortunate necessity of your
existence in these times. How about making a relatively
minute investment and boosting your popularity ratings? Sound tempting? Pay to send his body to the land of his birth. Maybe drop him at sea on the way. Okay, maybe not, but don't stand by and allow his family to spit in the faces of the victims who deserve our attention and support. How about we do the right thing and worry a bit less about offending the offenders?
