Dear Ms. Hart,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history including social justice. In these subjects, I like to learn the need for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, improve social justice to make communities a better place, and many others. Also I’m a fan of your acting and your activism. My favorite movie that you played in were Loving You. Loving You was a great musical drama movie about Deke Rivers, a delivery worker where he has a talent in singing and is recruited by an music publicist and a former musician to sing. In Loving You, some of my favorite songs were Got A Lot O’ Livin To Do, Teddy Bear, and many others. Ms. Hart, I thought you did an excellent job portraying as Susan Jessup because I liked on how you made Susan Jessup have different unique traits like caring about Deke Rivers when he has struggles with confidence in being a singer, having a friendship including a relationship with Deke, and many others. Also in Loving You I thought you and Elvis Presley did a great job making Susan Jessup and Deke Rivers great characters along with make a great team. Also what I really like about Loving You was how it had some symbolisms like the need for friendships when there are obstacles and when times are hard you shouldn’t give up your passion. Recently I saw a documentary called God Is The Bigger Elvis and it helped me get interested in learning about your life as an actress, your work with Elvis Presley, and why you went to turn to religion.
Besides your acting career, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes to reduce discrimination. Also I like on how you use your religion as a nun of Abbey of Regina Laudis to help support programs to help assist people who are homeless including people who are low-income get food along with hygiene products to help them during hard times, advocate for the need for health care reform to help people with pre-existing conditions or people who can’t afford health insurance get the care they need, and express the need for better environmental protection to reduce pollution. Ms. Hart, 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 have trouble maintaining friendships when some friends including peers of them get judgmental about me being different. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also I’m a Christian and as a Christian I believe in how religion should help people who are different or who struggle with being homeless, the need for health care reform to help improve health for people, and the need for a better environment to make the world a better place. Being a Christian with a disability is a challenge when some Christians including some people who are religious use their extreme views to bully or judge me hard due to having a disability. Your role as nun of Abbey of Regina Laudis on advocating for religion to be kind to people who are different including people with disabilities and to use religion for good values helps me continue to be a Christian. Also to mention sometimes I volunteer with a small community church called Vineyard Community Church to help feed the homeless people with food, drinks, some hygiene products, and non-perishable food to help them get food. Your role as an former actress and your work in religion gives me motivation to continue to learn history including social justice. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment, have health care reform to help people who have pre-existing conditions or who can’t afford health care get the care they need, and improve on social justice to make communities a better place.
I strongly believe that you make a great difference for society. Even though you left your acting career, I’m very proud on how you worked hard to be creative and make your characters have different unique traits. Also I’m really proud on how you use religion for good values including help people who are disadvantage or are different. You and Elvis Presley made a great team. You have inspire me to work hard on my disability, learn about your life, be a fan of your acting, and try to understand life when there are challenges. I have provided a small donation to your church to help assist the poor. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. Please continue to do good work and my prayers are for you and your members of the church to do good work to help make world a better place.
