Dear Mr. Strauss,
My name is Matt Winick and I’m a fan of your acting. Some of my favorite tv shows that you played in were Moloney and Body and Soul. Moloney was a great tv show about Nicholas Moloney, a LAPD cop and also a psychiatrist where he works on solving different cases while trying to navigate the criminal justice system. Mr. Strauss, I thought you did an excellent job portraying as Nicholas Moloney because I liked on how you made him have different unique traits like examining different evidence or witness statements to help understand the case, being compassionate for victims of crime or the people struggle with trauma, and may others. Also what I liked about Nicholas Moloney was how he would work hard trying to balance his life as a cop while following ethic laws of being a psychiatrist on doctor patient confidentiality, be an advocate for better mental health services including services to help people who struggle with mental health or people with mental illness, and people with disabilities get help, and wanting to make the criminal justice system a better place. Body and Soul was a great medical show about Dr. Rachel Griffen who returns to the medical field after studying alternative medicine in a different country and works with other medical staff to help patients. In Body and Soul I liked on how you made Dr. Isaac Braun a unique character by making him care about the patient’s wellbeing, having the motivation to try to improve himself when he deal with the challenge of the job ,and many others. Also what I liked about Body and Soul was how Dr. Isaac Braun and Dr. Rachel Griffen would work together to help patients and try to reform the health care system when they have differences or different views of alternative medicine and modern medicine use.
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 on your activism, I like on how you support environmental protection causes to reduce pollution. Mr. Strauss, 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 other people including other adults get judgmental about me being different from them and have struggles to find different methods to improve myself. 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 your characters Nicholas Moloney in Mahoney and Dr. Isaac Braun in Body Soul helps give me motivation to try to continue to have compassion along with expand on kindness to people when they have struggles, learn different methods to improve myself when I face obstacles, and try my best to understand life when there are challenges.
I strongly believe that you are a very talented actor. You do such an excellent job making your characters have different unique traits. You truly inspire me to work hard on my disability, be a fan of your acting, and try to understand life or develop strategies to help me improve myself when there are challenges. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. Please continue to make a great difference for society.
