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.

Dad's at the Obama White House.

My brother posted a note from President and Michelle Obama thanking him for his 'gift,' on his Facebook page. His gift, given to them a fundraiser, was two books both written by my father. I knew he had met the first couple, but had no idea about the books. Into my (proud) head popped "And to Think That I saw it on Mulbury street" the title of my Dad's all time favorite Theodor Seuss Geisel book.
