Welcoming means [add four more words]

"Welcome" can be as simple as a polite greeting to let others know their presence is wanted, or as profound allowing people to cross a country's borders. Whether it's a student who just moved into your college dorm, a new neighbor joining your street, or a refugee who is rebuilding hope on our shores, how do you let someone else know they are welcome? For SixContest #104, share what you think it means to welcome others by completing the phrase “Welcoming means [add four more words].”

And as a special celebration of the new Six-Word Memoirs collection being released on 9/5, we have a copy of Six Words Fresh Off the Boat: Stories of Immigration, Identity and Coming to America for the winner of this month's contest!

If you'd like to share a backstory (we love reading them!), be sure to submit your entry as a six and include the link here in the comments. Please post only one entry per comment.

Remember to tag us and include #WelcomingIn6Words when posting your Six Words to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram!
