Although much in the news does strike a reasonable amount of fear in me, as I worry about the condition of the country that we leave to our children. It does not qualify for my most terrifying moment.
When my husband almost died, was the most terrifying for me personally. Thankfully, he survived and is well, but those days were certainly dark.
Granted the fear was absolutely selfish on my part. I imagined facing the world without him by my side, raising our young three children (then) without his guidance and perspective, and losing my best friend. Being young and totally unprepared for those consequences, yeah, I was out-of-my-mind terrified.
