(RNN) - No matter your feelings on drone strikes, we can all agree it is a hotly controversial issue.

That's especially true when the unintentional target is a couple posing for wedding photos.

Back to school

And finally, parents everywhere are feeling the elation that only happens when months of struggling to find things to keep their kids occupied comes to an end.

One mom's happy dance in the middle of the street gives a new meaning to "most wonderful time of the year."
