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.

Autism didn't leave a ransom note.

by JohnBigJohn on June 5, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

There was never any demands given.

I sit by the phone all day.

I still have not gotten that call from Autism with instructions of how I get him my son back.

He is right here in front of me - but somehow gone. He's been stolen and brought to a place where I can't follow.

Some day's I can only find the energy to grieve and wait for the phone to ring.
