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.

Hoped racism wouldn't be here, disappointed.

Oh dear, I seem to have caused some misconceptions. By 'here' I had not meant Smithmag, I had meant the college I have been going to for the past year.

Our university's values include: Integrity, Excellence, Accountability, Respect, and Service.

So I had been severely disappointed when I heard about some frat kids that had bullied my friends in my dorm's lobby. This did not happen to me, but it might as well have.

Thank you to DynamicDbytheC for showing such concern, and inadvertently making me realize my mistake. Everyone here has been nothing but kind to me. Thank you! :)
