Taken as a whole, a life may be characterized as morally "good" or "bad", either by the one who has lived it or by outside observers. Exceptional lives may, at least in part, find literary reflection in a biography, an autobiography or a memoir. Some outstanding lives merit hagiography or a vita. --personal life article at Wikipedia [Jan 2007]
A human interest story is a news story that discusses a person or persons in an interactive and or emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest or sympathy in the reader.
Human interest stories may be the story behind the story about an event, organization or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during war-time, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, or profile of someone known for a career achievement.
