Dear Mr. Dick Van Dyke,
My name is Matt Winick and I am a huge fan of your acting along with your music talent. My favorite movie was Disney Mary Poppins. Disney Mary Poppins had a great story about Mary Poppins, a nanny coming to help the Bank’s family including their children. In Mary Poppins, I thought you did an excellent job portraying as Bert because I liked on how you made him have different unique traits like being compassionate for the poor, helping the Bank children when they have questions about life, and working with Mary Poppins to help the Bank family. Also what I liked about Bert was how he was kind to other people when other people wouldn’t be appreciative of him for being different or in a lower economic class and working with Mary Poppins along with developing a friendship desire them have some differences. Mary Poppins had some good messages like the need for compassionate for people who are poor or low class, the importance of not being greedy, and many others. Also in Mary Poppins my favorite songs that you sang were Step In Time, Jolly Holiday, and I love to laugh. I thought you and Ms. Julie Andrews made Bert and Marry Poppins a great team. My favorite tv shows that you were in was Dick Van Dyke Show and Diagnosis Murder. In Dick Van Dyke Show I like on how you made your character have creativity a sense of humor. Diagnosis Murder was a great comedy crime drama about Dr. Mark Sloan, a doctor/police consultant who solves cases. Mr. Van Dyke, I thought you did an excellent job making Dr. Mark Sloan a great character with different unique traits like using his investigation expertise to help the police department investigate cases, working with his son Detective Sloan including Dr. Sloans’s colleagues to solve cases, and using his medical experience to help different patients with different medical needs. Also I like on how Dr. Mark Sloan was a compassionate person to people who had struggles in life or when they had trouble with medical issues.
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. Mr. Van Dyke, 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. Also I had done teaching time to help me learn to speak while learn how to improve my behavior, spent time in special education to help me learn different subjects in education, and many others. 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 and helps give me motivation to try to find different methods to improve myself when there are challenges. Your characters Bert in Disney Marry Poppins and Dr. Mark Sloan in Diagnosis Murder helps give me some motivation to continue to use compassion including work on doing good things as a tool for good, work hard to improve myself when I have different challenges, help people who are poor or homeless by volunteering, and many others.
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 including your activism, and continue to improve myself or expand on good traits when the world gets tough. I have a $5 as a gift to you to donate to charity to help your causes. 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.
