Dear Mr. Thomas,
My name is Matt Winick and I’m a fan of your acting. My favorite tv shows that you played in are The Waltons, It’s A Miracle, and Just Cause. In the Waltons, I enjoyed the plot of the show about The Walton family in a rural town of Virginia where they experience on how their lives are impacted during historical periods ranging from Great depression, WW II, and other significant events. Mr. Thomas, I really thought you did an excellent job portraying John ”John-Boy” Walton Jr. because I liked on how you made him have interesting traits like being a serious thinker when he has to deal with understanding how society works and how he works hard to overcome different challenges when he deals in historical events where it helps shape him in a certain way. In the Waltons, I really liked on how you made your character also play a role in trying to understand American history like trying to save a person’s life during the Hindenburg disaster and enlist in the military during World War II along with when Pearl Harbor was attacked. Also what I enjoyed about the show was on how the family had different views about how the historical vents played a role or how different members of the Walton family have unique traits. It’s A Miracle was an interesting show on PAX-TV because I really liked on how the show had a great focus on how people had experienced miracles in their lifetime or when they had a struggles. It did a great job explaining about the cause of a situation, how the person felt or what their experience was, and how a miracle played a role. You did a really great job hosting the show because I liked on how you helped connect with people who had struggles or how they were affected by a miracle, did a great job narrating a story, and had a great message at the end of the episodes about the need to work hard at overcoming different struggles. Another show that I watched was Just Cause and I liked the show due to having a great plot about a woman named Alexandra who went to prison for a crime that she didn’t commit then she decided to get a law degree from taking law classes online, later she goes to work for a well respected attorney Hamilton Whitney III where they work on cases together. The main reasons I really liked the how was on how it dealt with civil cases, how Alexandra has a trait where she is willing to use the law to help people who feel abandoned by the judicial system or can’t afford a lawyer while Hamilton Whitney is more interested in willing to represent clients who are willing to pay, and how later Whitney and Alex put their differences to work together in order to help people who are less powerful achieve justice.
Your role in the Waltons motivated me to have an interest in learning American History. In American History I like to learn about different famous people in America worked hard to overcome different struggles to make our country unique, the need for Civil Rights to reduce discrimination, continue to make social justice a better place, and learn how different significant events in American history helped shaped society. The show also helped me understand how society gets affected in different ways by historical events. When I was young I use to watch It’s A Miracle on PAX TV because it really had great moral lessons that there can be miracles when times are tough or in an obstacle. Mr. Thomas, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Another thing that I struggle with autism is when I lose friends due to being getting judgmental and struggle to find friendships. Your host of It’s A Miracle and your message about not giving up when there are struggles or obstacles motivates me to work hard on my disability.
Mr. Thomas, I believe that you are a great actor and do such a great job portraying characters including develop interesting or unique traits. Also you did a great job hosting It’s a Miracle because you have a great message, help connect with people who struggled with an obstacle or other issues, and many others. You have inspired me to continue my interest in learning American history and to continue to work hard on autism when there are challenges. Here is a picture of me as a gift to you and $5 donation for you to use to help fund the arts. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, doing an excellent job making tv shows great to watch, and inspiring me. I wish you well for the future in acting and to do well on your Broadway show.
