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.

Loved Procol Harum. Hate Boko Haram?

by BoresHead on May 14, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I don’t hate Boko. What I hate is how the American government creates conflict in foreign soil, propaganda if you will, in order to go in under the disguise of humanitarian intervention. They did it in Libya and many other countries. The true reason behind “humanitarian interventions” is to take control of the country’s valuable resources, assassinate leaders, and expand on its military bases.
