Dear Governor Patrick,

My name is Matthew Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan. My main interest is history, government, and world culture. These subjects are my favorite because I like to learn how to improve society through ideas, the need to advance on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from discrimination, a strong need to protect the environment by using clean alternative resources from pollution, and many others. Governor Patrick, I read your book: “A Reason to Believe Lesson From An Improbable Life”.  A Reason To Believe Lesson From An Improbable Life helped me understand your early life on how you overcame your struggles through being on welfare, how your father left you when you were young, and going to public schools which was sometime violent. Your book was moving because it described on how many people including teachers, and mentors help guide you to help overcome your struggles and have confidence including helping you get in different careers.  Governor Patrick, your story and book really help inspire me to have faith when times are hard because I have Autism with a learning disability.  Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning new subjects, having trouble fitting in with other people, and getting teased by other people. However in my life there has been people, some teachers, Pamela Anne who worked with me on speech therapy to help me improve on my speech, and people who are famous who work hard to make a world a better place from discrimination like you and many others.  Your story help give me confidence to keep going on my life, to work hard on goals, and that there are people who can make a difference in your life.

 “A Reason To Believe Lesson From An Improbable Life” motivated me to do more research about you, your career, and your hard work as Governor of Massachusetts.  From a person with a strong interest in history I believe that you make a great difference for our country through being U.S. Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division where you work hard to help improve Civil Rights to help people who are different from discrimination and as Governor of Massachusetts where you continue advancing on Civil Rights, supporting legalizing same-sex marriage, protecting the environment through clean alternative energy, and help improve health care by expanding more programs to help drug addicts to recover.  Thanks for taking the time to read my letter and writing your memoir which help inspire me. I wish you well continuing serving your second term as Governor of Massachusetts. When you retire I want you to continue being an advocate to improve Civil Rights to help protect people who are different and continue to share your story about overcoming your struggle.


Matthew B. Winick
