How are you feeling about the way things are going? What worries you? What doesn’t? What scares you? What gives you courage?

Take the survey below and vent. You can fill it out anonymously if you want. But we do want to collect responses for publication or to develop stories, so please be as candid as you can. Thanks for all you do!
