After missing a short field goal that would have won his team a playoff game, a first grade class in Minnesota wrote letters of encouragement to Vikings kicker Blair Walsh. Even though their teacher is a Seahawks fan. 

Teacher Judie Offerdahl had her students write the letters to help teach them about empathy and plans to send them to Walsh.

You’ve really got to watch the video on the Star-Tribune’s website, because these kids are the cutest. 

“You are handsome,” one kid said.

“Everyone makes mistakes,” a few said. 

One girl said she hopes the Vikings win the Super Bowl this year, which hopefully won’t upset Walsh too much.
