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.

Going jetskiing. New experience for him

by jl333 on September 20, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Taking a 24 severely autistic young man, Jeremy, jetskiing today. I hope he loves it. He is non-verbal, so I will put signs on the back of each of my shoulders saying to 'slow down' or 'go faster'. He will be sitting behind me and will tap which shoulder he wants to communicate with me. Pictures to follow if the new SMITH system allows me to post (it wasn't allowing me to post pictures the other day). If he likes jetskiing, I plan on taking him out again
