Judge Paul Wilson of Supreme Court of Missouri

7/30/2018
Judge Paul C. Wilson
c/o Supreme Court of Missouri
P.O. Box  150
Jefferson City, MO  65102

Dear Judge Wilson,

My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history and social justice. In these subjects,  I like to learn the need for Civil Rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others.  Judge Wilson, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain  how I find your work as judge of the Supreme Court of Missouri to be very inspiring to me.

In 2012, I liked on how you accepted Governor Jay Nixon to appoint you to serve in the Supreme Court of Missouri to help improve the judicial system.  In your current role as judge of the Supreme Court of Missouri, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, pushing for strict sentencing for people who commit hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different, and expressing the need for the criminal justice system to reduce racial profiling to help protect minorities including immigrants from being oppressed.  On victim’s rights, I like on how you work with other court systems to expand resources to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get help on dealing with their trauma and strongly advocate for the need of more better protection for victims to be protected from being stalked by a criminal.  Supporting the need for drug treatment programs to help dug-users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse, expressing support for the idea of having community service programs to help rehabilitate non-violent offenders or non violent juveniles in order to reduce re-offending, and advocating for more funds for DNA testing including forensic science to help reduce sending an innocent person to jail while solve cases with evidence efficiently is common sense for criminal justice reform.

Judge Wilson, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased.  Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability.  Also your work as current as current Judge of the Supreme Court of Missouri gives me motivation to continue to learn history with social justice. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others.

I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in the Supreme Court of Missouri. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support Civil Rights, push for criminal justice reform, and  advocate for victim’s rights.  You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and to continue to learn history with social justice. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a difference in the judicial system, and inspiring me.  I wish you the best to continue to make a great impact on society including the criminal justice system.

Sincerely,

Matt Winick

Dear Honorable Sharp,

My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history with social justice.  In these subjects, I like to learn the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. Honorable Sharp, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work in the Texas state legislature and your work as 14th Chancellor of the Texas A&M University System to be very inspiring to me.

When you served as Member of the Texas House of Representatives from the 40th District from 1979-1982 and as Member o the Texas Senate from the 18th District from 1982-1987, I truly appreciated on how you were a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, working with other state legislature to expand laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different, and supporting funds for women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy.  On the economy, I liked on how advocated for the need to raise the minimum wage to help minimum wage workers afford to live and supported expanding on job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills to help prepare for the workforce.  Supporting funds for renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas and working to provide funds to improve city services to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use is common sense to protect the environment.  In your role as Member of Texas Railroad Commission from 1987-1991, I really liked on how you worked on improving railroad safety to help protect trains from accidents,  reforming the state trucking regulations to help protect people who drive trucks have a safe working conditions,  and strongly advocate for the need for biofuel or alternative energy for vehicles to help reduce co2 emissions.  As 35th Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts from 1991-1999, I was amazed on how you pushed for reforms like the Texas Performance Review, to audit on state government to review spending, The Texas Tomorrow Fund, a pre-paid college tuition plan to help Texas families who are low-income secure a future for their children to go to college,  Texas Window on State Government to improve the Texas State Comptroller’s agency to help citizens engage with the agency to gain access to different information, and Family Pathfinders, an initiative to help families who are on welfare to connect with local civic clubs, congregations, and businesses to help them get jobs or get into a job-training program.  In your current position as 14th Chancellor of the Texas A&M University System, I like on how you work on improving diversity by hiring women, minorities, and people with disabilities to work for the campus,  supporting funds to expand on grants to expand on research programs to help college students get involve more in education with learning, and many others.

Honorable Sharp, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased.  Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability.  Also your role in Texas politics gives me motivation to continue to learn history with social justice. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make Civil Rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others.   Also back in March 2018, I enjoyed visiting College Station Texas to see the campus and visit the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum where I had fun learning about President Bush’s life with his presidency.

I strongly believe that you made a great difference in the Texas public service. I’m proud of how you worked hard to support Civil Rights, protect the environment from pollution, and push for common sense reform.  You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and be motivated to learn history with social justice. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to improve society through your service in public service, and inspiring me. I wish you the best to continue to advocate and push for common sense ideas.

Dear Mr. Garber,

My name is Matt Winick and I’m a fan of your acting. Favorite movies that you played in were Titanic, Milk, and Argo. In Titanic,  I enjoyed the plot about how Rose met Jack on the RMS Titanic.  Also what I enjoyed in the movie was on how it featured real historical figures that boarded the Titanic like Molly Brown, Thomas Andrews, Captain Smith, Bruce Ismay,  John Jacob Astor IV,  second Officer Lightoller, and many others.  What I liked about Titanic was how it showed on how a person from a wealthy lifestyle can have a friendship with a person from a lower class.  Also in Titanic I really liked on how Jack and Rose would have some interaction with some of the famous historical figures before the Titanic sank.  Mr. Garber, you did an excellent job portraying as  Thomas Andrews because I liked on how you made him an interesting historical figure by working to help the other passengers get to safety when the ship hit the iceberg, and how he is very kind and friendly to people. In Argo,  I enjoyed the plot of the movie about how a CIA agent Mendez pretending to film a science fiction movie to help rescue 6 U.S. Diplomats  who escaped for the embassy during the Iran hostage crisis.  You did an excellent job portraying Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor to Iran  because I liked on how you made Ambassador Taylor really like a historical figure on willing to risk his life to help shelter the 6 U.S. Diplomats from being harmed by Iran and working with CIA agent Mendez on finding a safe passage for them to return to the U.S.  Milk was a great biopic about Harvey Milk’s life about how he was a strong supporter of Civil Rights including LGBT rights, dealing with his struggle in society as a homosexual, and many others. In Milk, I enjoyed seeing how Harvey Milk had some allies that helped supported him like Mayor George Moscone. My favorite tv shows that you played in were Alias and DC Legends of Tomorrow.  In Alias, you really made Jack Bristow a great character on the show because I liked on how you made him have a great traits like caring about protecting his daughter Sydney, a CIA agent from danger including helping her deal with different hard lifestyle like losing her best friend with having trouble balancing her life as a spy and her [personal life.  Also in Alias, you and Ms. Jennifer Garner made     Jack and Sydney Bristow a great father and daughter team up.  In Legends of Tomorrow and Flash I really enjoyed on how you really make Dr. Martin Stein/Firestorm a great superhero on the show because I liked on how you made him have interesting traits like being really smart at science,  learning how to help Firestorm understand his powers, helping Barry Allen/Flash on helping understand his abilities, and working with different superheroes to save the world. Also In the DC shows I liked on how it did a crossover with Supergirl, Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow and I thought you did an excellent job making Dr. Martin Stein/Firestorm a great teammate for the other superheroes.

Besides your acting career, I really like your activism on advocating for human rights including people with disabilities’ rights. Also I really like on how you are supportive of donating money to continue to fund arts and expressing the need for diversity in the entertainment industry. Mr. Garber, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased.  Another thing that I struggle with a disability is when I lose motivation Your advocacy for human rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Your role in historical movies including biopic movies helps give me motivation to continue my interest in learning history. The main reason I like learning history is because it helps motivates me to work hard when I face struggles in life like dealing with a disability and understanding how society works.  In history, I like learning  about how famous people or individuals (minorities, women, people with disabilities, and other background) work hard to make a great difference for society, understand the need for Civil Rights to be strong to reduce discrimination,  and many others.  

I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in historical movies including biopics and tv shows. You really do an excellent job making your characters have different unique traits.  You truly inspire me to work hard on my disability, be motivated to continue to learn history, and be a fan of your acting, Here is a picture of me as gift to you for inspiring me and $5 as a donation for you to use to help fund human rights or the arts to make society a better place. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, doing an excellent job acting including making a great difference, and inspiring me. I wish you well on your future in acting and on Broadway.
