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.

I have become my parents, parent

by uknow on August 14, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

There are times in life when we are pushed into a role that we don't want. I mean literally don't want. Recently, I became the parent of my parents, I never expected this role reversal, it just slipped into my life.

I am not complaining, I am just saying how did I know this would happen! It is sooooo hard to have to make decisions for someone you once looked up too as your hero, now your hero doesn't know they exist.
