May 16, 2013

It's pretty tough not to like this story. A 7-year-old boy from Milwaukee named Myles wrote a letter a few months ago to U.S. Vice President Joe Biden.

Myles had an idea to make the world safer - guns should shoot chocolate bullets; that way no one would get hurt.

Well this week, Myles - and the rest of his school - got a surprise when they received a handwritten note from Biden in the mail.

Myles' teacher Jenny Aicher took a photo of the Vice President's note, praising Myles' idea because it would make America safer and happier.

Biden signs off with "People love chocolate. You are a good boy."
