GLEN ELLYN – Chanting "books, not bullets" and "this is what democracy looks like," hundreds of people marched from Abraham Lincoln Elementary School to Glenbard West High School in Glen Ellyn on March 24, demanding action following the Valentine's Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., that killed 17 people.
The march was part of the worldwide “March for Our Lives” protest against gun violence in schools. Among those participating was Glen Crest Middle School student Anna Cunningham, 12, of Glen Ellyn.
She marched with a sign that said, "I wish that women had the same rights as guns."
"I support gun control, and I would like to see less guns in school," she said.
