No matter how old are, how big you are, or how brave you are, we all have our fears. Some fears we outgrow, but others stay with us for years — housed in the corners of our minds and the nerve endings of our bodies. Fear come in all shapes and sizes from debilitating fears dominating our daily lives to insignificant qualms that simply make us uneasy. Being scared may be rational or irrational, originating from past experiences, the anticipation of future catastrophes or mere figments of our imagination. What is fear? What makes some of us afraid and others not? To get some answers to these questions our hosts Henna Hundal and Caiseen Kelley have in depth conversations with reporters Katelyn Darrow and Asya Gonzalez. Katelyn discusses Universal Studios terrifying haunted houses, Asya reveals personal secret fears, Caissen delves into the fears surrounding technology, and Henna relates fears in the writing of her new book. Whether your fear is real, imagined, physical, or emotional, you’ll emerge a bit more courageous after listening to our talented teens converse. As Mark Twain said, “Courage is the resistance to fear, not the absence of fear.” Listen at Voice America Kids Radio and visit Express Yourself for photos, descriptions, links, and more!
