Fear is what you have in your heart or mind. Fear can be two things. It can be in your mind. For example, when you are asleep by yourself, it seems like someone is watching you so you get scared, but when you turn on the light nothing is there. When it is in your heart you know it really is happening. For example, when someone walks up to you, you usually get scared and run off. There are so many ways your mind can play tricks on you. But sometimes you know something is wrong. I think if you asked anybody if they had a day they had fear, they are going to say yes. Everybody has fear in his or her heart or mind. Some people think that they don't fear anything, but that is not true. You have to have fear. Everybody has a fear.
