A MAN AND HIS WIFE go on vacation to Italy. While in Rome, they go to see the Vatican. They take a grand tour and look all around. Wow, the man’s wife says. This place is fancy! Yeah, says the man. It certainly is something. They ask the tour guide all kinds of questions. These are statues, says the tour guide. And those are called frescoes. Ah, the man and his wife say. How interesting! When they get home, they walk in and stand in their living room. So the two of them decide to turn their house into the Vatican—or if not The Vatican, A Vatican, whatever. It takes them a long time—apparently they have to get some permits. Plus it turns out to be extremely expensive. It’s so expensive, in fact, that they’re forced to take second jobs. The man works the night shift at 7–11, and his wife makes little ornamental pigeons out of clay. She paints them and sells them on eBay. But eventually, after many years, their Vatican is complete. It is beautiful, and very, very fancy. It looks almost exactly like the original one in Italy, only with a few additional conveniences. There’s a race track, for example, and a holographic theater, and a nice place where you can get your nails done. And also, truth be told, there are a couple fewer statues (because the two don’t like statues all that much). And the man and his wife are very happy with the place. They spend all their free time admiring it. Which actually isn’t much—they’ve had to keep their Well, it’s not the Vatican, says the man. No, says the man’s wife. It certainly is not. But there’s no reason it couldn’t be, she adds.

second jobs because the upkeep on the Vatican is expensive. There are so many plumbing problems, and one giant electrical nightmare. But in general, the two of them are happy. But then one day, something happens: the doorbell starts to ring. It starts to ring because the neighbors are coming by. Your house is amazing! all the neighbors say. Thank you very much, say the man and his wife. It looks just like the Vatican! all the neighbors say. Could we come in and look around? Is that okay? Of course, say the man and his wife, and they let the neighbors in, and then they take them and show them around. This here is St. Peter’s Basilica, they say. Andmore neighbors come to visit every day. Until, pretty soon, the man and his wife find themselves completely swamped with neighbors to show around. It’s hard to find the time, with their second jobs and all. Maybe, they say to each other, we should start charging? So the man and his wife begin to charge for the tour. They charge an even fifty dollars at first. They’re hoping that the price will keep the visitors at bay—but instead of keeping them away, it brings more. You know, the people say, it’s really a fantastic deal! It’s so much cheaper than going to see the real thing! You don’t have to leave the country, or deal with the exchange rates, or find a hotel, or buy a plane ticket, or anything! So the man and his wife decide to raise the price—first to seventy, and then to a hundred dollars. But still it doesn’t work. We love this Vatican! people say. We told our friends! And next week we’re planning a school trip! The man and his wife lie in bed at night. They are rich now, but completely exhausted. Well at least we got to quit our second jobs, the man says. But I liked making clay pigeons, his wife sobs.
Well, says the man. So what do we do? I don’t know, says his wife. Maybe we could hire people? To give the tours? says the man. What a brilliant idea! So they call in some tour management people. And the tour management people take over the operation—which is great! But it works a bit too well. They hire a lot of guides, and offer a million tours, and now people are streaming through at all hours. The man and his wife now lie in bed at
There’s no A/C, but they don’t mind the heat. It’s kind of like being at the beach! the man says, as they sit on their lawn chairs in the parking lot. Yes, says his wife, and the ice machine is close! (Which is good because the asphalt gets hot.) And so they stay on. They live in the motel. Eventually the man takes a job. He works there at the front desk, checking people in and out. It’s just for fun—he always liked the night
WE LOVE THIS VATICAN! PEOPLE SAY. WE TOLD OUR FRIENDS! AND NEXT WEEK WE’RE PLANNING A SCHOOL TRIP!
night and listen to people stomping through their home. They hear them in the kitchen, opening up the fridge. They hear them poking around in the medicine cabinet. I can’t take this! they finally say. This has got to stop. We have to lay down some boundaries or something! So they go to the see the company who’s managing the tours. But they’re told they have to speak to the shop steward. Sorry, says the shop steward. That’s against the rules—we can’t block areas off, or cut down the hours. But if you’re really against it, you do have recourse: you just have to get an act through Congress. They go back to bed and huddle together. What do we do? they say, as the footsteps stomp around. How about, says the man, we take a vacation? So in the morning, the man and his wife pack their bags again. But this time, they don’t go to Italy. This time they just go to a motel down the street. Congress? says the man. Congress? says his wife.
shift. And meanwhile, his wife has a kiln up on the roof. She’s made about a million clay pigeons. She paints them very carefully and sets them aside. And on weekends, they go out for a ride. They go out for a ride, down the street toward the Vatican. And they park there and walk up and down the line. Clay pigeons! they say, to all the tourists. Five dollars! And with the money, they buy a fine Italian wine. --- “The Vatican” is published by permission of the author, Ben Loory. Copyright © Ben Loory 2018.

The Sierra Norte Mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico, support some of the world's most treasured biodiversity.

March For Our Lives: Road to Change // LAST STOP: NEWTOWN, CONNECTICUT // THERE ARE DAYS of loss so defined in our history we remember exactly where we were when we heard the news. Our memory divides the moment into “before” and “after.” Reading the Marjory Stoneham Douglas High School daily announcement for Wednesday, February 14, 2018, we’re reminded of a routine day in high school. Before a former student killed seventeen students and staff members, injuring seventeen others. >> PHOTOS BY DEBBIE REHR ,

THAT DAY, a community was shattered and families destroyed. It’s all too familiar to the families of Newtown, CT, in our own backyard, and a list that goes on and on. The teenagers of Marjory Stoneham Douglas High School lost 17 friends, siblings and teachers on Valentine’s Day. Yet, their remarkable spirit turned tragedy into an organized national movement and march just weeks after the shooting.
NOT ONE MORE. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of a gun to save the lives of their students. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top priority to save these lives. This is not just about schools, though. This is about churches, nightclubs, concerts, movie theaters, airports—it’s everywhere. A child should not fear a bullet on his or her walk home. Although this movement has stemmed from children, we are not fighting for just children. All lives are precious, and our country must make the safety of its citizens a number one priority. March For Our Lives was created by, inspired by, and led by the students of Parkland, but has since created student allies of all ethnicities, religions and sexualities across the country. We will no longer sit and wait for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of gun violence.
HowThey Spent Their Summer Vacation
THE PARKLAND STUDENTS skipped a summer vacation in order to travel the country, hear from partners and allies about the issues facing their communities, and discuss a shared vision for the future. March For Our Lives: Road to Change launched in June in Chicago and spanned 100+ visits in 24 states over 60 days. The students organized over 35 town halls in 24 different states, meeting over 100,000 people at their events, and registering tens of thousands of voters in person and online. They also visited over eighty communities where they met with dozens of gun-violence- prevention and other community groups. On August 12th, students from March For Our Lives wrapped up the Road To Change summer bus tour in Newtown,
Connecticut for a powerful community event organized by Sandy Hook Promise. Jaclyn Corin, March For Our Lives Co-Founder and senior class president at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida: “It has been incredible to travel to state after state, hearing from young people who are empowered and driven to move our country forward. My generation is standing up to the NRA, and we’ll be the ones who make common sense gun reforms a reality. We were awed by the energy in cities, towns and rural areas, and know that the energy we experienced will be turned into action in November. As young people go back to school, register for classes, or head to work, we encourage them to register to vote so that their voices are heard.”
BACK TO SCHOOL ... AND MORE March For Our Lives will travel to college campuses where young people can make an impact in the election, and communities that are deeply affected by gun violence. The students will also launch Mayors For Our Lives, an initiative partnering with mayors across America to give the opportunity for young people to register to vote in their schools. >> Get involved at marchforourlives.com << *

HPV THE VIRUS YOU THOUGHT YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO THINK ABOUT
CAMILLE, TRISTAN AND JUSTINE ALMADA PHOTO BY LUCAS FLORES PIRAN
Not so fast...What about you? Or your spouse?Or your partner?You’ve beenmarried for 27 years without any interruptions or detours, not an issue, right? What about adults who have not been immunized with a vaccine? Here’s an HPV wake-up call: 79 million American men and women – 1 in 4 – currently have HPV. The virus is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI) and is responsible for 5% of cancers worldwide. HPV causes at least six types of cancer and affects both men and women. A frightening statistic: nearly all sexually active adults will have at least one type of sexually transmitted HPV at some point in their lifetime. It can be transmitted through skin-to-skin contact
during sexual activity and HPV can be spread without engaging in intercourse. All people who have ever had sex are at risk for HPV infection. HPV is a skin virus. In most cases HPV goes undetected – it is not clear that an individual has HPV. For the majority of the population, one’s immune system will rid the body of the virus and HPV will not turn into precancer or cancer. However, HPV can lay dormant in one’s body for many years and resurface as an HPV-related cancer decades later. Because of this it is difficult to determine from which sexual partner one contracted the infection. HPV is attributed to over 90% of anal cancer as well as cervical and head and neck cancer. The virus can be classified as either WESTONMAGAZINEGROUP.COM 49
our kids had the Gardasil vaccine. Yes, it feels awkward, immunizing your 11–12 year old from a sexually transmitted virus, but you follow your pediatrician’s vaccine recommendations. Conjuring images of your preteen in today’s oversexed world is way too much to think about. So, you take comfort that you’ve wisely protected your kids from the human papillomavirus – or HPV. Now you can close the HPV chapter.
low-risk or high-risk. Low-risk strains of HPV may manifest as genital warts. High-risk strains may turn into cancer. Individuals with compromised immune systems or who smoke are at a greater risk for HPV infection and more vulnerable to HPV progressing into precancer and cancer. Meet the individuals who have dedicated their lives to raising awareness about HPV and ensuring that families in the future will no longer be affected by it. She was only 51, with no symptoms. Paulette Crowther, a mother of three, lost her battle to stage IV HPV-related anal cancer in 2010. At the time, there were limited resources to help understand her cancer. Her children – all in their early twenties – were repeatedly shocked and frustrated by this cancer’s stigma, lack of support for patients, limited progress in treatment, and inadequate diagnostic screening. After her death, her three children – Justine, Tristan and Camille Almada launched The HPV and Anal Cancer Foundation, analcancerfoundation.org , a donor-supported research, support and advocacy non-profit organization. The foundation’s goal is to eradicate HPV, and consequently, the 1 million cancers a year this virus causes worldwide. In light of their mother’s needless suffering and untimely passing, they also work to improve survival for anal cancer specifically. Their work has resulted in the first advance in treatment for metastatic anal cancer since the 1970’s. HPV cancer patients often express a feeling of shame and embarrassment about their type of cancer. The foundation addresses the isolation cancer patients often feel by providing resources for prevention, screening, and support. Paulette’s children now understand that when a woman has an abnormal Pap smear, it indicates the presence of HPV. Decades earlier, when their mother was in her 20s, she had been treated for cervical dysplasia, a condition that often precedes cervical cancer – and is also caused by an HPV infection. Frequent monitoring and screening could have caught the cancer earlier when it was treatable. “Our mom, Paulette, was an incredible and loving mother and friend who had LOSING A PARENT TO HPV-RELATED CANCER
monitoring. Last summer Lillian started experiencing alarming symptoms such as pain and rectal bleeding. Her gastroenterologist performed a digital rectal exam and discovered a tumor. Lillian was diagnosed with stage II anal cancer. Her incredibly upbeat attitude and supportive friends circle got her through a difficult treatment course at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Today, she is back to feeling like herself and wants to raise awareness about this rare cancer. WHAT YOU CAN DO: • In October, the FDA approved the expanded use of Gardasil 9 to include individuals 27 through 45 years old. • Women are screened for one HPV-related cancer, cervical cancer. Gynecologists and female health providers use a Pap test to check for abnormal cells on the cervix and/ or an HPV test to look for HPV presence in the cells. • Women can have their provider search for rectal cancer by asking their gynecologist to perform a DARE (digital anorectal exam) as part of a routine exam. This simple 1-2 minute test can detect an abnormal mass. The test is not considered part of a gynecological exam so a patient needs to ask her doctor to perform the test. • In men, a digital anorectal exam, the screening tool for prostate cancer, can detect an anal tumor. An examination of the head and neck can feel for an oral or throat tumor. However, these are not routinely administered and often need to be requested. • See your physician right away if you notice any lumps, bleeding, pain, or abnormal discharge in your throat or anogenital area, including hemorrhoids that do not go away. If your physician is unable to answer your questions, ask for a referral to a specialist, such as a colorectal surgeon who can provide an anal Pap smear and an anoscopy. *
so much more to give to this world,” says Justine Almada, one of the siblings and a co- founder. “She would still be with us today if better prevention, screening, and treatment options were available. The elimination of smallpox, polio, and other infectious diseases gives us confidence that our dream of HPV eradication is possible in our lifetime. We are fiercely working towards that day for HPV, so that no other family will face the terrible loss that our family suffered.” A few months ago, Justine and her siblings met Lillian Kreppel, a recent cancer survivor whohas joined their effort to end these cancers.
LILLIAN’S STORY Lillian Kreppel has a family history of cancer – she lost her grandmother to colorectal cancer – so the 53-year-old had been getting regular colonoscopies for more than ten years. Like most patients, Lillian assumed a colonoscopy would detect not only polyps in the colon but any rectal abnormalities. The reality is the test only looks at the colon. Many years ago she was diagnosed with human papillomavirus, so she also made frequent visits to her gynecologist for

RAISINGAN EXCEPTIONAL CHILD is a uniquely challenging experience, one that’s as problematic as it is rewarding. Parents must contend with issues of safety while ensuring that their children are receiving the appropriate support for their abilities. In the new Off-Broadway play Mother of the Maid , playwright Jane Anderson juxtaposes current questions surrounding this subject by placing it in the context of the story of Joan of Arc’s mother. Though Joan’s story has been told in countless variations, this play focuses on the perspective of matriarch Isabelle, a practical, hard-working,
afraid for her daughter, but also thrilled that she has a gifted daughter who can go out in the larger world and do the things she wishes she herself could do.” Anderson chose to set the play at the height of the Hundred Years’ War to heighten the circumstances. “Isabelle is an illiterate, poor woman who has never gone beyond ten miles from her home because there was this constant, horrible danger of raids coming in. Isabelle talks about her very dear best friend and her friend’s family who were hideously slaughtered by soldiers, so not only has she lost the one person she could have companionship with,
God-fearing peasant woman whose faith is tested as she deals with the mystifying, tragic journey of her odd and extraordinary daughter. “When I was a young girl I was always a fan of Joan of Arc and the romance and strength of her,” says Anderson. “I wanted to be Joan of Arc. I wanted to wear boys clothing and run away. I think many young women have this fascination with her because she symbolizes getting out of the house
but it was done in such a horrible way. Placing this play at a time of extreme danger also raises the stakes.” Maid reflects the difficulties of raising an exceptional teenager in 2018 in the fact that it explores how parents worry for their children when they are surrounded by people telling them that their children are gifts to the world. Anderson says that she “riffs a bit” on the celebrity that surrounds gifted teenagers who become athletic stars or

and doing wildly important things and being famous and powerful.” At the age of 19 the actor and writer dropped out of college and left home in California to pursue her dream of being an artist in New York. However, it wasn’t until Anderson became a mother that she realized how difficult her choices must have been for her own mother, in turn compelling her to write Mother of the
film stars and what it does to parents who worry for their children. “When Joan tells Isabelle that Saint Catherine and God have told her she’s going to save France, Isabelle’s initial reaction is to slap it out of her because it’s a terrifying thing. Jacques Arc, her father, was so horrified by this notion that his girl would run off with soldiers that he told her brothers and his sons, ‘We’re going to drown her in the pond.’” Anderson points to Jacques as
Maid . “I found it so heartbreaking because I am a mother. I have a son, which is a little different than your view of a daughter because culturally you feel less protected. You want to push your boy out into the world and you don’t quite worry that your son could be physically hurt the way your daughter could be. In a way, this is a peon of appreciation to my parents for releasing me to the greater world.” Though Anderson (who is known for penning projects such as the Emmy Award-winning Olive Kitteredge and this year’s The Wife ) was not officially classified as being gifted, she recalls being seen as a gifted artist in her mother’s eyes. “Everyone wants to think their child is special, and they exaggerate it; my mother certainly exaggerated it,” she says of how she came to Isabelle Arc’s story. “[In Maid ] Isabelle is
being an important balance to Isabelle because she is deeply religious and realizes that “everyone at court thinks Joan is special, so Joan must not be able to help it.” At the same time, Isabelle is astounded that her daughter is being admired by the elite, and the play mirrors what this does to families in the present. “There’s a certain innocence that Isabelle has that then gets knocked out of her. Jacques sees that the church manipulates people like them, and Joan’s brother follows on her coattails and uses her fame to further himself.” One might argue that today’s parents are more excited at the prospect of their children being gifted or famous, thus garnering attention. Anderson agrees that this is the case because there is
