Dear The Honorable Kmiec,

My name is Matthew Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in studying history, world culture, and public policy. The main reason I have a strong interest in these subjects is to learn the need to advance on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from being discriminated, improve health care to help people get the care they need, understand the need for diversity to help make society better,  and learn the need to improve relations with other countries to reduce tensions, and many others.  Honorable Kmeic, I find you work as a legal scholar, as an author, as a U.S. Ambassador to Malta to be very inspiring to me.

In your role as a legal scholar, I liked on how you wrote books about the U.S. Constitution and how there is a strong need to protect people’s civil liberties like the first amendment, fourth amendment, fifth amendment, and six amendment from being violated.  Another thing that I liked about your work as a legal scholar is how you express support for advancing Civil Rights to protect women, minorities, and people with disabilities from being discriminated and advocate for people with disabilities’ rights.  Another thing that I liked was on how you had good reasonable approach to being catholic with describing how catholic should led by example like how Catholic should not use their religion to discriminate people who are different, the need for separation between church and state, and how they should support health care services for women including people who are poor get the medical care they need.   In 2008, I was very proud on how you express abut being opposed to Proposition 8 that was to allow a state constitutional amendment to ban same-sex couples from marrying each other including limiting their rights due to violating religious liberty for churches to marry same-sex couples and how it violated separation between church and state in an article that you wrote.  During the 2008 Presidential election, I was very proud on how you being a moderate Republican with a Catholic background endorsing Barack Obama, a democratic candidate for the Presidential race due to agreeing with Obama about the need improve wages to help minimum wage workers afford to live, have healthcare to help people who are poor or can’t afford get the help they need, and reduce the War in Iraq due to the cost of lives lost.  Honorable Kmiec, I really liked your article “Can A Catholic Support Him? Asking the Big Question About Barack Obama” because I liked on how you explain who you support Barack Obama due to some of his support for some of the Catholic principles.  When Barack Obama became President of the United States, I was very proud on you accepting to become U.S. Ambassador to Malta to help improve relations between U.S. and Southern Europe and help President Obama work hard to make a great difference.  As U.S. Ambassador to Malta, I was proud on how you created a resettlement to help protect refugees including families including giving them freedom be protected from the violence in sub-Saharan Africa and play a strategic role in helping U.S., European Union, and South European countries to work together to reduce nuclear weapons, human trafficking, and drug smuggling to make a world a safe place even reduce tensions.

Honorable Kmeic, I have Autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending in learning different subjects, struggle with speech, and sometimes get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights including being an advocate for people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on Autism.  Your work as an author and as a legal scholar got me very interested in learning more about how the U.S. Constitution plays a role in our country including how civil liberties are important to be protected. Even though I’m a Christian your advocacy for making religion a better place to help people instead of going too extreme helps me be motivated to have faith in religion and understand the importance on how religion can help shape society. Also your work as U.S. Ambassador inspired me to continue my interest in learning history and taking a class about world history at Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In my world history class, I enjoyed learning about different countries, understanding the need to improve relations or work with other countries to reduce tension, how different ideas or inventions helped shaped the world, and learning about how famous figures had an impact on the world. My main future goals is to continue studying history, teach people about the need to improve society, work in public policy to help create good ideas to make a world a better place, and even continue to praise people who work hard to make a great difference or who inspire me like you.  

Honorable Kmeic, I strongly believe that you made a great difference for the world and society in your role. I’m very proud on how you worked hard to advocate for good ideas, express the need for religion to help people, work with another political party to help move our country forward, and improve relations between the U.S. and Europe.  You have inspired me to work hard on Autism, learn the importance of how religion can be used for good things, and to continue my interest in history including public policy. I was wondering if you could please share with me what it was like being U.S. Ambassador and ways to continue being interested in history with public policy. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a world a better place,  having the courage to work with President Obama, and inspiring me . Here is a picture of me as a gift to you for inspiring me. Please continue advocating for good ideas to reduce tension between other countries and to make law a better place for people.
