Everything is different now

Don Henley is no stranger to the dark side of humanity.  Consider “Hotel California,” or “Dirty Laundry.”  But, true to the title, his song “Everything Is Different Now” is different, not because it doesn’t address the grittiness of the hell of vice and addiction, but because there is an escape, through faith and in both giving and receiving the unconditional, committed love of another human being.  This is a horror story with a happy ending.  I fully recommend watching the video, because it is a work of art in and of itself.  It skillfully portrays personal hell, as well as personal salvation.
