The Baby Is WHERE?

Michelle Kemper Brownlow: We all have the fear that our babies will crawl their way to unsafe places. Well, you'll never believe this story!

San Antonio bus driver Mike Hubbard gotthe shock of a lifetime when driving his bus down a dark side street just after midnight: Something was sitting in the middle of the road. He slammed on his brakes to avoid hitting that something -- which turned out to be1-year-old Destiny Flores, dressed only in a diaper and sitting comfortably on the double yellow line.

"From a distance, I can't tell exactly what it is," Hubbard recalls. "It looks like a dog, something moving around -- I can't really tell what it was. I started slowing down, and then I noticed it was a baby in the middle of the street."

Hubbard's dashboard camera caught amazing video of that night. The video shows Hubbard approaching the baby, and a man entering the scene, grabbing the baby and running back toward the sidewalk. Hubbard reports that the man ran into a house and had not been outside when the bus stopped.

This incident occurred more than a year ago, but the video surfaced afterChild Protective Services became involved in what is believed to be another incident involving all the Flores children (there are three girls).

Destiny's mom, Catherine Gonzalez, 25, was tearful in a "Today" interview via satellite. "People just don't realize these things happen," she sobbed. "It was just an accident."

I do have to say that this scenario could play out in any home on any street. How many of us have woken up to find that our child has climbed out of the crib for the first time? What if, instead of waking you up, your child crawled out the screen door just like Destiny had?

I am sure there will be more attention given to the Gonzalez-Flores case, and my hope is that the children in this case remain safe -- no matter where or with whom it's ruled they will live.

If a man does not make new acquaintances as he advances through life, he will soon find himself alone. A man should keep his friendships in constant repair.

Let me not be understood as saying that there are no bad laws, nor that grievances may not arise for the redress of which no legal provisions have been made. I mean to say no such thing. But I do mean to say that although bad laws, if they exist, should be repealed as soon as possible, still, while they continue in force, for the sake of example they should be religiously observed.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
