The title is broken down and is imagined by readers of a little town occupied by former students who still act as they did in high school. From the beginning line, it is clear to the reader that the speaker is reminiscing his past by “glancing over my shoulder at the past,” (Collins 534). By stating, “I realize the number of students he has taught is enough to populate a small town,” also adds to the image created by the title (Collins 534). The speaker has taught so many years that his former students could populate a town.

To some, It is believed that genetics is the sole reason for a person's behavior, good or bad. This is called Nature. Others believe that it is the environment that influences a person's behavior, and the environment can be anything or anyone- society, a community, or a caretaker. This is called Nurture. The debate of Nurture vs Nature is an ongoing argument that has yet to be finally solved, but it is clear that Nurture is the most influential. Genetics, race, and biology does have somewhat of an impact on how a person deals with certain things, but it is the environment in which that person grew up in that determines whether the situation will even occur. For example, a person who has her mother’s negative attitude may deal with a conflict with someone else in a negative way, but a person who grew up in a positive environment in a society who looks down on unnecessary problems may have a less chance of getting into the conflict in the first place.

Dr. Nichols explains how fear is a normal response to life-altering events that one may face, and these fears can often tie one’s heart in knots. This steals the joy that Christ provides. Attempting to use the fear will not overcome the challenging event that originated the fear.
Fear is what you make of it because nothing is inherently scary it is what you take from the object or experience that makes it scary and fills your head with fear.
