This week, 9/11 was on everyone’s minds, Jackie O’s previously unreleased interview caused controversy, and Miss Angola inherited the Miss Universe crown. Life: full of moments where we don’t know if we want to laugh or cry, yell or sigh. Everyday at SMITH, writers share Six-Word Memoirs that reflect moments of mixed emotions. Read below for the best memoirs of the week, and click on each author’s name for more stories.

Most Self-Aware: “Terrorists don’t scare me, love does.” -Elisa Shevitz
Best Imagery: “Swept-it-under-carpet. Hardwood floors.” -Contemplative
Toughest Narrative Arc: “Caregiver longing to be cared for.” -Flikchik
Best Wordplay: “My two-year old’s resisting a rest.” -Steve Anthony
Most Certain: “My past is mine to keep.” -Kae (profile image above), with Six Words on Pain and Hope.
