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.

Walking again because cancer doesn't sleep.

by Knoxena on June 27, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I'm walking again in the 2013 Relay for Life...and this time its different, I'll be walking with my hero. My friend Carole who is a survivor. My list of cancer sufferers is very long and they are all passed away, but this time I can celebrate with my friend because she is here. Not just a name on a long list of people who didn't win the battle, let alone the war against cancer.
