Everyone is afraid of something and for some reason, and maybe it's just me, but it seems like there's something about this time of year that only heightens our sense of awareness to the things that make us the most afraid. Would you agree?

By definition, fear is "an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat." It can be anything from the fear of flying to something as silly as being fearful that if you step on a crack you're going to break your mother's back. Ok, maybe that's taking it a little too far, but you know what I mean.

So, what are people in Rockford the most afraid of? I asked the question on my Facebook page and here are some of my favorite responses.
