On December 17, 2001, The Kansas City Star reported that "about 6,000 people filled Bartle Hall [in Kansas City]... to observe the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting. They heard messages of tolerance and enlightenment spoken in a context of war... some Muslims chose the day to praise the Kansas City area and the tolerance they have enjoyed here... Representatives of other religious communities also attended Sunday's celebration."
