2017 has gotten off to a bewildering start. A flurry of political and social activity that left millions feeling energized about this moment in America history. People from every state are diving in and getting involved, either to oppose or support the changes in Washington and elsewhere.

At the same time, many confess to being confused, fearful and plain exhausted. Barely a month into the new administration, many are burned out and want nothing to do with the news or activism right now.

What does this moment in America mean to you? Are you feeling fired up, or burned out? How are you handling it?
