The Democratic and Republican national conventions have come and gone, and their most memorable moments have painted two very different pictures of America and its future. Do we live in a fearful America crying out for “law and order” as presidential candidate Donald Trump has promised to provide? Or is America a hopeful place where former president Bill Clinton plays with balloons with childlike glee?
