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.

28 years ago, seven lives lost

by jl333 on January 28, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Challenger Space Shuttle tragedy. Every year I do a tribute at our local library for the three major disasters that NASA has faced. Another anniversary is coming up this weekend, with the Columbia tragedy and one of the Apollo tragedies on the launch pad. We will not forget those men and women who put their lives on the line to explore. How sad that most people in today's generation have no idea that without the space program , they would not have the internet and their stupid ass cell phones. And the list doesn't stop there!
