In Memory of Eric Scott Hansen

For Andrew, Brian, and Eric's loving family...

We use labels everyday in our life. Labels for acquiring knowledge and meeting challenges like a teacher in the classroom and a city planner looking for green space to create beauty and recreation. Parents use labels charting their child's physical, intellectual and social development to meet their needs here on Earth.

Hopefully, historians are truthful and honest labeling our human history because learning from our past helps us prepare for our future. We become better people. We solidify our connection to each other as a humanity while also healing. Just ask anyone labeled "genocide" survivor.

Right now, I'm wrestling with the one label describing the wake of our human condition. The one used to eulogize our beloved Eric.

Life is "fragile."
