This week, the Facebook flick hit the big screen, the world lost silver screen legend Tony Curtis, and the country mourned a Rutgers student’s suicide at the hands of his cruel peers. Through our openings and closings, ups and downs, your Six-Word Memoirs continued to surprise and inspire. Here are six six-worders we love from the week ending October 1. Click on each author’s name to check out more memoirs.
