First Grader's Profound Response to Class Riddle Goes Viral

A teacher's "Puzzle of the Week" just went viral after he shared a story about his student's attempt to solve it. 

"I am the beginning of everything, the end of everywhere. I'm the beginning of eternity, the end of time & space. What am I?" the riddle reads.

[It totally seems like it would have a really serious answer, right?] 

"The first guess from one of my 1st graders was "death" and such an awed, somber, reflective hush fell over the class that I didn't wan to tell them that actually the answer is the letter e, which just seemed so banal in the moment," Bret Turner said in a Tweet. LOL!

Doesn't that just make you want to hug all those precious little kids?!
