    Why Humanastory

    Brian Klein

    Why Humanastory,

    Humanastory was built out of the need for human companionship, a togetherness that only comes from people helping people. We wanted to be able to tell our stories and share our experiences with everyone who needed them. By us telling our stories we are able to share that moment that forever changed who we are. But the idea is to not just tell our story, but share the journey in how we overcame that moment in our lives, allowing others to read and see the story and connect to the one sharing it.

    Most people want to tell the horrid things, but fail to share the accomplishments. At Humanastory we are not those people; we are the strong, the winners, and the achievers. We believe that sharing our experience will help someone out there in the same situation, and allow them to connect with others that have already conquered their struggle. We give the resource within our stories to help those who otherwise would fall - the help to stand up and face what is in front of them without fear or doubt. We believe everyone has the ability to succeed in life.

    If you are alive on this little rock hurling through that endless void we call space, you are a Humanastorian! How much of one, is up to you.

    Our community consists of three shows:

    1. Coffee With Humanastory - Our unscripted conversational show that interacts with our members about stories people submit to us.
    2. Reading With Humanastory - We read a book that a member shared with us in hopes to learn something new.
    3. An Open Conversation - An open conversation with the person, who submitted a story to us, that we felt you had to meet and get to know.
    4. What Brian Thinks - Brian, our host and founder's, personal thoughts and what he experiences and sees in life, day to day.


    We are reminded daily why Humanastory is so important. The stories we receive come from mostly individuals passing on whom wanted to share their wisdom to someone else undergoing the same struggles they had in life. They seem sad, but potentially save others in sharing their journeys. These individuals deserve a the upmost respect and gratitude for helping make the world a more positive place, and doing it whilst they are no longer around to enjoy it (A selfless act indeed). It is these people and their stories that make the impact on the world and while it seems these people who have shared their journeys through life get nothing in return, they did something that could and can never be repaid. The Honored Forgotten; they will not be forgotten here. Meet our inspiration, Mark Ehmke (Lower left); learn more about him here .

    • Do you remember the last time you spoke to your mother? If you do, when was that? Do you remember the last time you expressed how much you love her? and if so, when? I am unsure if it is only me but I feel that we tend to have this habit of shying away from the expressing how important our mother and or our father is to us. I must admit that I am not used to expressing how much I love my parents. I seldom say those three little words: "I Love You". It is not because I am shy about using them, but rather, I have this mannerism about if I don't feel like saying it, you can never make me say it. But that changed the moment I learned about my mother's diagnosis. It was November 2016 when the doctors confirmed that my mother had stage 3 ductal carcinoma ( stage 3 breast cancer). I knew that the chance of beating this illness was 50/50. now this didn't stop us from proceeding with the horrors that were to come, so, we followed the physician's advice. She went through the process of chemotherapy. We knew, cancer was not easy to beat. We knew this would take all of my mother's will and desire to get well. For two years, she continued to fight against the big 'C'. We had urged from different people for her to continue with her required chemotherapy and medication. People were trying to help her in any way they could -- financially, morally, and even for her food. Her co-church goers became more than a family to us. They were uplifting her spiritually whenever she felt like giving up. None of these people were our family, but they were there for her. I witnessed how these people became apart of her and I could not be more thankful for their generosity. My mother lost her battle. Her body had given up and became weaker due to the high dosage of medication she received after two years of battling cancer. The hope the family had was still high until the very end since cancer didn't affect any of her other organs. There is and act in what we in our church feel is an act that represents god's request of us; 'our calling in life'. and I felt hers came last March 25, 2018. It wasn't easy to accept. At this point It wasn't easy to, not, notice all the things she had done for me and my siblings. I know now it is too late to appreciate all the things my mother had done to their children. However, I must point out, one  tends to notice these little lessons a lot more when they aren't around us any longer. I must admit, I miss every thing about my mother. I miss all the things she did whenever I would go and visit her. I miss all of her. I am not saying that I didn't appreciate everything she had done for me, I just realize nowadays, it did take this for me to understand appreciation, I miss her more now than ever. I have noticed this is one of the things we tend to forget; we tend to forget to show appreciation with whatever our parents do for us when they are around. It isn't to late for those whose mothers are still around, for them to see this point of view. Take a moment to let your parents know how much you appreciated all their efforts and all they do for your life -  just to make sure that you are in a good position. It has only been less than nine days since she left us permanently but I do miss my mother so. rest well. - Michelle Dawson
    • It was about three and a half years ago. I was standing on the sidewalk waiting to cross the street when a pickup came through the intersection trying to turn right. His rate of speed and blood alcohol caused him to go up on the sidewalk and hit me. Now, I am a nurse and have always wanted to be a nurse. I loved my job. The injuries that I had sustained from this accident, left me with a paralyzed arm among other injuries. The driver was a young man in his 20's. The full extent of the law would have put him in his 30's when he was released. I did not believe this would have been rehabilitative. I asked the judge to give the minimum sentence with alcohol recovery classes. This young man had been very remorseful and when I reached out to him in a letter trying to understand the circumstances of the accident, he could have ignored my letter, but instead, he called me and apologized. We have all been young once, and have made mistakes. My forgiveness helped me enormously, and any anger or retribution would not have given me my arm back, or my job for that matter. Before you react to a situation, think of the consequences of your actions and remember that the other person is a human being. - Kathy Schiffer
