ATV safety, U.S. airstrikes in Iraq, ceasefire on Gaza Strip, B2S forecast

 Good Monday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*A 14-year-old Sulphur girl is recovering in a Houston hospital after an ATV accident leaves her with a severe brain injury.  Now her family is on a mission to help protect others.

*U.S. airstrikes in Iraq could continue this week.  President Obama says it will be a long-term project that now includes more humanitarian aid.  We'll have the report on the new effort to save lives.

*Israel and Hamas militants agree to another 72-hour humanitarian ceasefire.  The agreement comes after another day of violence in Gaza and Southern Israel.  

*Controversy surrounds the facebook messenger app as details emerge about how much information facebook can see and use.  We'll let you decide for yourself as we show you the changes.

*It's back to school week for the remainder of students in Southwest Louisiana!  Meteorologist Zack Fradella is filling in for Ben this week and will tell you about rain chances and a cold front this week.

Make it a Sunrise day!
