We expressed our hope that this is not one of those. I have friends up and down Laney Walker. We wish them all the best. At least we are letting you enjoy your freedom of speech after we were denied ours by your actions that resulted in our freedom of speech being denied and our post being pulled. You'll notice we are not doing anything to get you or anyone elses post being pulled..

3 year olds are impulsive and

3 year olds are impulsive and are known for taking off and running. They are as fast as lightning. Even with careful supervision, they can still run out into a street and get hit by a car.

Cut that 15 year old kid a break. I'm sure that they feel bad enough as it is.

Thank God that baby is ok and not seriously hurt.
