Remember that old saying "If at first you don't succeed...?" Well try, try again (and again and again) is exactly what 3-year-old Crosslyn Vest did when she wanted to get back on her horse Bo, according to the "Today" Show.

Even better than her unwavering dedication is the look of pure joy on Crosslyn's face after finally achieving her goal.

San Francisco filmmaker and activist Kevin Epps, who was arrested and released this week in the fatal shooting of a man inside his home, applauded the city's justice system Wednesday during an interview with NBC Bay Area. Epps was arrested Monday on suspicion of homicide after 45-year-old Marcus Polk, was found shot to death in Epps' home in the city's Glen Park neighborhood. The award-winning filmmaker was released Tuesday after the District Attorney’s Office declined to charge him, citing a lack of evidence. Epps said he couldn't provide details about the incident, but he and his attorney said the DA's office made the right decision. "I can’t really convey what I’m feeling because it’s highs, lows," Epps said.

David Wallach and his son, Johnny, were living a dream come true watching the Cubs, their favorite team, play in a World Series game. Sitting in the bleachers before Game 1 in Cleveland on Tuesday, things couldn’t have started better. Cubs outfielder Dexter Fowler threw a ball into the stands during batting practice. The ball fell into the hands of an Indians fan who then gave it to Johnny, who was celebrating his upcoming 8th birthday. But things quickly took a turn for the worse – just as the Indians scored their first home run of the game.
Indians fans were quick to celebrate, and one of them elbowed Johnny in the head while cheering, knocking the young boy out for about 30 seconds.
Officials in central Italy began early Thursday to assess the damage caused by a pair of strong earthquakes in the same region of central Italy hit by a deadly quake in August, as an appeal went out for temporary housing adequate for the cold mountain temperatures.
Thousands of people spent the night in their cars following the pair of quakes that struck late in the evening, sending residents into the streets in pouring rain, too late for authorities to come up with adequate shelter. A series of small shocks overnight, including two registering magnitudes above 4 before dawn, further unsettled residents.

Authorities in Florida say two guests who tried to carry guns into Walt Disney World theme parks have been charged with carrying a concealed firearm.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office says 61-year-old Michael Langston of Louisiana was arrested at Epcot, and 23-year-old Baleigh Turner of Alabama was arrested at Disney's Animal Kingdom a short time later on Monday.
Arrest reports say Langston revealed his gun after a Disney security officer selected him for a random metal detector screening, while Turner's weapon turned up in a search of her backpack, and neither had a valid concealed weapons permit. Both were released from jail, where records didn't list attorneys.
Doctors have gradually left Puerto Rico during a decade-long recession that has gripped the island and driven more than 200,000 people to the U.S. mainland seeking better opportunities. Now, the steady departure of pediatricians, surgeons, orthopedists, neurologists and others has become a stampede as the economy shows no sign of improving and financial problems in the territorial health insurance program make it nearly impossible for doctors to stay in business. Up to 700 doctors are expected to leave Puerto Rico this year, double the number from two years ago, said Dr. Victor Ramos, president of the island's Association of Surgeons.
