MILWAUKEE (TheBlaze/AP) — Students at a Milwaukee, Wisconsin, school wrote the vice president a few months ago — and now one of students has received an unexpected personal response that’s garnering attention.
The 7-year-old, second-grade boy at Downtown Montessori Academy wrote a letter to Vice President Joe Biden and other officials with an idea about guns.
His teacher Jenny Aicher says his letter suggested that if guns shot chocolate bullets, no one would get hurt.
The student – and the rest of the school – got a surprise Monday when Biden’s handwritten response arrived in the mail.
In the note, the vice president says he agrees that chocolate bullets would make the country “safer” and “happier.” The note concludes: “People love chocolate. You are a good boy, Joe Biden.”
Aicher said she expected a form letter from the vice president and called his personal, handwritten note “phenomenal.”
