Dear Mr. Schroder,
My name is Matt Winick and I’m a fan of your acting. My favorite tv shows that you played in were Silver Spoons, NYPD Blue, and Strong Medicine. Silver Spoons was a great comedy show about Ricky Stratton who moves in a mansion of his father who he never met and understand life. In Silver Spoons, I liked on how it focus on Ricky trying to improve his relationship with his father, understand how friendships work when he struggle to make friends including fit in, and many others. NYPD Blue was a an awesome crime drama about how NYPD police detectives solve cases along with how they deal with trying to balancing their work life along with their personal life. I liked on how you made Detective Danny Sorenson a unique character in NYPD Blue by making him have traits like examining evidence to help the other detectives in the unit solve cases, learning on the job to improve himself to gain more experience on the job, and many others. Another show that I really enjoy watching was Strong Medicine. Strong Medicine was a great medical drama show about Dr. Lu Delgado who works with other doctors and a staff at Rittenhouse Health Center where they help patients with different medical issues. In Strong Medicine, I liked on how the show focuses on social justice, different health issues, and class conflict. Also in the show I really liked on how each on the main characters would have different unique traits and do soul-searching to find ways to help use a different approach to a situation. Mr. Schroder, I thought you did an excellent job making Dr. Dylan West a great character on Strong Medicine because I like on how you made Dr. West have great traits like willing to work hard to get along with Dr. Lu Delgado when they have differences, wanting to improve himself on different skills to learn from his mistakes, wanting to go the extra mile to help patients who have trouble with different things in their lives, and many others. Also in Strong Medicine season 6 I like on seeing how Dr. Dylan West would work together with Dr. Lu Delgado to find some common ground to help each other.
Besides your acting, I truly appreciate your activism on supporting Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes, advocating for the need to reduce bullying, expressing the need for diversity to make society including entertainment accept people who are different, and expanding funds for the arts to make entertainment better for people. Mr. Schroder, 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. Another thing that I struggle with a disability is when I have trouble with friendships when I lose some friends when they lose faith in me due to having a disability and some peers of friends get judgmental about me. Your characters Ricky Stratton in Silver Spoons and Dr. Dylan West in Strong Medicine helps give me some motivation to try to understand how friendships works when things get difficult and find ways to improve myself so I won’t repeat the mistakes.
I strongly believe that you are a very talented actor. You do such an excellent job making your characters have different unique traits. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, try to understand life including friendships when things get difficult, and be a fan of your acting. I was wondering if you could please take the time to give me some advice about working hard on my disability when I face different challenges. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, doing an excellent job making a great difference, and inspiring me. Please continue to make a great impact on society.
P.S. my letter is a gift to you for inspiring me and to wish you a Happy Birthday for April 13th.
