Hope means to believe in changes.
Hope is more powerful. You can succeed with hope and you cannot
with fear. It's because fear means you are scared. Because you
are scared that you can't do what you're supposed to do, you will
not try. Hope means that you are going to try to do it and end
up doing it right. You think to yourself that you can do it! Always
use hope and don’t fear. Hope also means wish as in, "I
hope that my family always has happiness." Fear also means
when you get afraid, when you see something wild like a lion or
thunderstorms. Fear is good when you see something scary and you
can get away. In my opinion, we could also hope that the scary
thing goes away.
Hope is more powerful because we can hope in more places than
we can fear. Hope is better than fear in a classroom.
I hope when I can't do something-I try and work it out. So, it
is more powerful because it helps me succeed.
