POLL: How Will This Weekend's Violence Impact You -- And Our Democracy?

BlogHer Original Post

This past weekend both our country and community were rocked by the events in Tucson, AZ. Fast on the heels of learning that a gunman attempted to assassinate Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) and killed six other people, we learned that among the 13 additional people wounded was Ashleigh Burroughs, one of BlogHer's own community members.

Lisa, Jory and I know that this event has affected us deeply, and we're guessing a lot of you may feel the same way.

We'd like to know how it has affected you. And perhaps more important: What impact you think this will have on your future actions? What is the impact you would like it to have on our country, our politics, our politicians, our people.

Thank you for taking this brief survey and sharing with us your thoughts in the wake of this weekend's horrible events.
