After a long weekend of Memorial Day cook outs, the Dutch reported plans to colonize Mars, a tropical storm by the name of ‘Beryl’ invaded the Southern Coast, and former presidential candidate overcame some stormy weather of his own. Here at SMITH, the authors of these Six-Word Memoirs forged ahead for themselves, sharing stories, celebrating the iconic life of Walt Whitman and creating their own literary landmarks in six meaningful words at a time.
