On November 23, 2001, the Los Angeles Times reported that at lunchtime during Ramadan at Palos Verdes Peninsula High School a group of students gathers for prayers. "This year, these students, ages 14 to 18, are determined to stand up for their faith through prayer in this quiet yet public way. They say that praying together during Ramadan is one way they can show their commitment to a religion that has recently become the most discussed, criticized and defended of any in the world."
