Six Word War is an incredibly creative concept which has veterans and current soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan write a very short story about their experiences-6 words to be exact. This idea came from the popular urban legend of Ernest Hemmingway’s famous 6 word story: “For sale, baby shoes, never worn.” While evidence debates if this story is really Hemmingway’s or not, the idea is genius and has gained popularity, challenges all types of people to write similarly short and profound stories.
In honor of Veterans Day today, check out the Six Word War website here. The stories range from sad to happy, positive to political, and almost always inspiring and moving. Happy Veterans Day and a big thank you to all of you who have served!
