Two questions on fear

For class, we have to answer two simple question about fear. The questions are “what is fear?” and “why do we have fear?”. These questions are part of an upcoming assignment based on fear, but for now, I will just answer the questions in this blog post. Part of this assignment was to read Harold and the Purple Crayon and then draw our responses to the questions using a purple crayon. So, here are my answers and drawings to the questions:

What is fear?

Fear is something of which you are afraid.

Why do we have fear?

We have fear because it is what makes us human. Without it, we would be just like robots, oblivious beings.
