ANY OF YOU WHO GREW UP WEARING ADIDAS SWEAT PANTS and 1" thick laces in the big 80's remember the show "The Greatest American Hero". Well, the white guy with the lovely sun-kissed fro plays Ralph Hinkley-a teacher of students with special needs with a determination to get through to them.
Through a series of totally unbelievable circumstances, he is visited by aliens (gentle ones) and told that he must wear this ridiculous suit w/special powers to save the world. The problem is that he left the instruction manual in the desert. So, he's got all this power available to him, but never really learns how to use it properly. He's a man with good intentions but at the same time is seriously flawed.
The irony is that we are all Ralph Hinkley's. We're all born with this syndrome. We have amazing power of the divine kind available to us, yet never truly tap into its full potential. We never really harness how to fully appropriate it. We have this effective instruction manual that's been on the #1 best seller list since the beginning of time, yet how often do we forget it? We are all good intentioned...yet are riddled with character defects and secrets we wouldn't tell our closest friend.
Believe it or not...the "alien" who designed and truly does care about this world (enough to die for it) has been rejected by the ones he made in his image. He is the symbol of grace ascending with perfection while we in our syndrome like Ralph can't even land right on our own. Good thing we have more than a drunken FBI agent and cheezy theme song to help us through.
Great Artist| Posted July 18, 2016
I haven't wear such pants but want to be an artist. I am impressed to read about Ralph Hinkley Syndrome and his styles are getting popular day by day especially in young guys. Those students who are worried about their papers can find uk thesis writing help and spend their leisure time on adopting different styles.
