Hi, Ayshah here.
Your top stories on Newsround today.
We get ready for tonight's
Brit Awards and...
Why this baby rhino and his mum have
only just been reunited.
First to the US.
After an attack at a school
in Florida last week,
students there have been making
a stand against guns.
BBC reporter Paul Blake has
travelled with the pupils who're
talking to politicians
about the changes they want.
All of the students on board
are survivors of the school shooting
that happened last week in the city
of Parkland in South Florida.
Last week's attack is the sixth
gun attack on a school
in the US this year.
Today we are on our way to the state
capitol to speak to some lawmakers
in charge there about ways we can
make our schools safer
and ways to place controls
on guns in our country.
I do not feel safe in my school.
I was incredibly afraid.
I was scared for all my friends,
I was scared for my little
sister and everyone there.
They need to know that that should
never ever happen to anybody else,
no one should have to feel the fear
that I felt.
We want to talk to lobby groups
about making laws more strict
so that less people have access
to guns and other weapons,
so less kids get hurt.
The students are not alone.
Many people in the United States
want the gun laws made tougher but,
at the same time, many people want
them to remain the same.
In recent years politicians have
decided to keep the gun
laws mostly unchanged.
But the students on board the bus
today say that they think they can
convince the politicians to make
the gun laws safer and they drove
eight hours today to
talk to them about it.
I'm so proud of all my friends.
We are young, not much older
than you are, but we are really
making a big difference I think.
Many of these students
have never been involved
with politics but they say
they are just getting started.
Next month they will go
all the way to Washington,
DC where they say they will hold
a protest and tell the adults
that they need to do more to keep
America's kids safe.
And if you want to know
more about this story,
you can go online right now.
Also if you're upset by any
of the things you see in the news,
we have loads of advice
for you there too.
It s the BRITS tonight,
the biggest event in British
I've been finding out some weird
and fun facts about it?
Five things you might not
know about the Brits.
Different categories come and go.
One year there was the Best
British Comedy Record.
And in 2013 one Direction
got the catchy title
of Brits Global Success Award.
That's it, I'm making
up my own award, Best Dancing
The reason why we have the Brits
is because of the Queen.
Seriously, it all started back
in 1977 to mark her silver jubilee.
It is now in its 30th
year and showcasing all
of Britain's best music talent.
The statue is meant to be a female
personification of Britain.
That's a big word!
Basically it's meant to be a female
symbol of the UK which is why
it is shaped like this.
A famous British artist
designs it every year.
Most awards are voted
for by just 1000 people.
These guys are really
into their music.
DJs and record labels choose
who they think are the best artists.
But this year two
categories are up to you.
That is the British
Artist Video of the Year
and the British Breakthrough act.
And finally, it's a massive
social media event.
In 2016 when One Direction
won Best British Band
they broke the Internet.
Well, they didn't actually break it,
but it was the most talked
about event on Twitter that year
in the UK.
I wonder what we'll be
talking about this year?
And we'll bring you all the BRITs
winners tomorrow on Newsround.
Next up, a white rhino
that was looked after and fed
entirely by people has been reunited
with its mother.
Introducing Belle -
she was named after the character
in Beauty and the Beast.
And she lives at
Cotswold Wildlife Park.
She needed extra special treatment
for an injured leg after birth.
A team of zoo keepers
were with her 24-hours a day
until she could be reintroduced
to her mother Nancy.
They even had to sleep with her.
Thanks for watching.
Ricky's back in the morning.
