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.

Obama succeeds where the Nazis failed.

Hitler's vaunted armies couldn't keep Americans off those beaches. But Obama thinks he can. He's kept his favorite golf course at Andrews Air Force Base open, while barricading the Lincoln Memorial, the Mall, the Washington Monument, the WWII Memorial, etc. The White House chef is still on duty, but the military PXes are closed.

Wouldn't be surprised if Obama and his minions were enacting tableau vivant on the shores of the Potomac, Marie Antoinette-style, while the rest of us scrounge for whatever cakes escape the shutdown.
