Dear Ms. Riley-Starnes,
My name is Matt Winick and I’m a fan of your work as a singer and your activism. Some of my favorite songs that you sang were Harper Valley PTA, The Girl Most Likely, There Never Was a Time, Duty Not Desire, Good Morning Country Rain, One Night, The Best I’ve Ever Had, It’s Wings That Makes Bird Fly, Things Go Better With Love, and many others. Ms. Riley Starnes, you do such an excellent job singing because I like on how you made some lyrics in your songs have creativity and some important messages of life. Also another reason I like your songs is how you make your songs have a message like the need for love, the importance of friendships when times are hard, a strong need for self love when there are difficult times, having faith when the world gets toxic, and many others. Besides your work as a singer, 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 are an advocate for the need for better funds for the arts and support environmental protection causes to reduce pollution.
Ms. Riley Starnes, I have autism with a learning disability. 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. Also another thing that I struggle with a disability is when I have difficulty maintaining friendships where I lose friends due to some friends, some peers of them, and adults get judgmental about me being different from them or have a disability. Sometimes I struggle to understand life when it gets challenge when I want to find ways to improve myself. Your support for civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also some of your songs that have different messages helps give me some inspiration to try to understand life, learn the importance of self love when times get hard, have motivation to try to find different methods to improve myself, and many others.
