Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan laid out his ideas Sunday for ending the violence that has killed so many young people in Chicago and the suburbs.Farrakhan spoke after services at Greater Institutional AME church on South Indiana. A number of political, religious and community leaders joined him.

The minister said the solution to the problem is everyone working together to solve it. He said children need to see each other as brothers and sisters so they will not have a need for guns.

Farrakhan also talked about the insecurities that some young people feel.

"There's a tendency to feed youth with the idea that weapons give you power," he said.

Farrakhan also suggested there could be conflict resolution centers around the city to help people resolve disputes.
