As y’all know, I’m all about 6 words, one of the few times I’m able to limit myself. I have become so energized by the daily challenge that I’m building a new blog that’s dedicated just to that exercise. (More on that later.) In the meantime, the SmithMag folks who’ve promoted this idea have announced a NEW project: 6 Words to Inspire a Nation:
“SMITH is teaming up with the National Constitution Center for a new project, Six Words to Inspire a Nation, in which we ask readers and museum-goers to suggest the half-dozen words they hope to hear on January 20.
Help President-elect Obama inspire America. In six words, give him guidance. Or offer ideas for his inaugural address. Or share six memorable words for January 20th and beyond. In six words, a President can say a lot: “Malice toward none, charity for all,” “Nothing to fear but fear itself,” “Like a thousand points of light.”
We’re offering prizes and a chance to have your words displayed in a special exhibit at the museum in Philadelphia. Submit your words here. Contest ends January 5. So give your speechwriting a try.
The Six Word Memoir book was named one of the Top 100 books of 2008 by Amazon.com editors!”
So whether or not you submit any directly to the contest, please post some of your thoughts below. After all: Inspiring Minds want to Know!
