The Story of Luka Apps

Assalamualaikum WBT

Salam 1 Dunia

Yesterday as I was browsing the Internet; Facebooking, Twittering and 9Gagging suddenly I found out a story which really moves me. It was a story of a 7-year old boy, Luka Apps whom spent his Christmas money on the LEGO Ninjago Ultra Sonic Raider Set but eventually, he lost the miniatures set when he was going out to Sainsbury with his family.

Of course losing a newly-bought toy would be kind of "disastrous" for all kids, and if it was me, definitely I will be crying over and over again (as if I am 7 years old which was 16 years ago). But this kiddo and his father definitely deserve my respect for their wise fulness. In spite of crying or whatever we usually do when we lose something, he wrote a letter to LEGO, seeking for the replacement of the set.

My name is Luka Apps and I am seven years old.
With all my money I got for Christmas I bought the Ninjago kit of the Ultrasonic Raider. The number is 9449. It is really good.
My Daddy just took me to Sainsburys and told me to leave the people at home but I took them and I lost Jay ZX at the shop as it fell out of my coat.
I am really upset I have lost him. Daddy said to send you a email to see if you will send me another one.
I promise I won't take him to the shop again if you can.

Seriously, the first time I read his letter I was like, "WOW! This kid is brilliant!"

And not long after sending the letter, he got a reply message from Mr. Richard, a LEGO customer service representative.

Luka, I told Sensei Wu that losing your Jay minifigure was purely an accident and that you would never ever ever let it happen ever again.
He told me to tell you, "Luka, your father seems like a very wise man. You must always protect your Ninjago minifigures like the dragons protect the Weapons of Spinjitzu!"
Sensei Wu also told me it was okay if I sent you a new Jay and told me it would be okay if I included something extra for you because anyone that saves their Christmas money to buy the Ultrasonic Raider must be a really big Ninjago fan.
So, I hope you enjoy your Jay minifigure with all his weapons. You will actually have the only Jay minifigure that combines 3 different Jays into one! I am also going to send you a bad guy for him to fight!
Just remember, what Sensei Wu said: keep your minifigures protected like the Weapons of Spinjitzu! And of course, always listen to your dad.
 And the story ends with a happy ending. Luka Apps got his toy set replaced by LEGO plus extra toys.

For some unexplainable reasons, I really admire this kid, Luka Apps. Kudos to his father, Mr. Richard and Sensei Wu for their wise and reasonable actions.
