The theme of this story that I came up with is fear makes people to crazy things. I say this because in one scene Charile on of the main characters shoot at Pete because he things that he could have been and alien. And later in the story a mob start to form around Charile the are now expressing their fear with anger and rage. And in the second to last scene of the story The people of maple street have let their fear take over them. This causes them to lose their minds go insane and start destroying their homes and street.
