This week, voters filled in ballots, some geeked out on calendar palindromes, and others honored soldiers past and present, while SMITH members continued sharing personal stories in the form of Six-Word Memoirs. Below are the best memoirs of the week; click on each author’s name for more.

Best Juxtaposition: “Rescued by knight in shining taxi.” -notjustagirlintheworld
Best Metaphor: “My cover doesn’t match my book.” -rebakay with a Memoir of the Day from earlier this week
Best Backstory: “Each kid thinks they’re my favorite.” -lgp120
Best Exposition: “Need to relocate. Considering fourth dimension.” -favepeep (profile image above)
Best Ending: “Despite doubts, “SuperDad” T-shirt still fits.” -Steve Anthony
Best Rhyme: “Ham and cheese, what a tease.” -Elisa Shevitz with Six Words on the Jewish Life

Plus: We launched “Six Words in Coming Home from War” with Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America, a year ago, and this Veteran’s Day the short, powerful impressions on the experience of war and return home continue.
