This week proved challenging for many as tornadoes devastated the Southern states, Syrian protesters faced violence, and the space shuttle Endeavor experienced mechanical problems. Here at SMITH, writers share their own challenges through Six-Word Memoirs and sometimes find support in comments left by other memoirists. The best memoirs of the week are below, and more stories can be found by clicking on each author’s name.
Most Melodramatic: “We’ve considered murder but never divorce.” -BanjoDan, with a memoir that garnered the most comments and favorites.
