“Muddled through life, confused but unbroken.” The Best Six-Word Memoirs of the Week

Friday, December 31st, 2010

By Larry Smith

At the start of a new year in a new decade, we set resolutions for what we wish to change in ourselves (in six words and more). With a war, positive social changes and a fluctuating economy, the first decade of the new millennium will surely make the history books. As the story of 2010 is written, we suggest that there’s a small place in its time capsule for your powerful and inspiring Six-Word Memoirs. Here are six six-worders we love from the week ending December 31. Click on each author’s name to check out more memoirs.
