A teacher's challenge to his class ends up going viral on twitter

The most recent generation, "Generation Z", might already have begun replacing millennials.

Born between 1998 and 2016, this new generation or next generation just four days into 2018, has dealt their cards through a tweet that just went viral.

It contained a puzzle from a teacher in Albany, CA, named Bret Turner, he posed to his first-grade students, younger Gen Z’s. And because of it, many surmise that Gen Z’ers will exceed millennials in many ways — at least in terms of understanding life after death. Deep right?

Here’s how the in-class interchange went down, according to Turner.

It began with the riddle itself: "I am the beginning of everything, the end of everywhere. I'm the beginning of eternity, the end of time and space. What am I?"

And the response Turner got from one of his students was rather profound, albeit morbid:

Turner wrote, “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 want to tell them that actually the answer is the letter 'e', which just seemed so banal in the moment.”

Children say the darndest things, right? “Death” as an answer seems peculiar for first-grade children to offer, as many Twitter users found.
