When 270 schoolgirls are abducted by terrorists and it doesn't make global news, something's wrong.

A devastating thing has happened in Nigeria: More than 270 girls were abducted from their school in northern Nigeria by the terrorist group Boko Haram. It was only after everyday people led a huge campaign to draw attention to the missing girls that the media and world leaders sat up and started listening.

Listen to Nigerian movie star Stella Damasus explain the issue, and hear her challenge the Nigerian government and world leaders to #BringBackOurGirls.

Suni Lee, 18, a Team USA member from Minnesota, became the Olympic all-around gymnastics champion on Thursday night.

"It feels super crazy, I definitely didn't think I'd be here in this moment with the gold medal," Lee said after her win. "I'm just super proud of myself for making it here because there was a point in time when I wanted to quit."
