Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, November 6, 2014 ESL as a college student (The following article was written by Gladys Ingram, a student in the PluggedlnVA Crime Scene Technician program. ESL stands for English as sec- ond language.) Born and raised over- seas until the age of 21, I never thought I would one day leave my family and friends and move so far away from home. But, as fate would have it, I left the world I knew to discover one I had only heard of on television and through movies. Gladys Ingram I came to the United States in March of 1984. I had no special reason to be here except to escape ter- ror, the terror of a civil war that erupted when I was only 12 years of age. Going to school was terrifying at times, not knowing if I would actually make it there or if I would have the chance to see another day. But after years of living in fear, I came to accept my fate. I just wanted to live... even if it was for the moment. Through it all, I man- aged to graduate from high school and go on to col- lege, but the war was get- ting worse, and I couldn't come to terms with the sit- uation any longer. I became ill. My parents decided to send me to the U.S. to stay with friends. I knew what they were thinking; at least one of us would have a chance at surviving. Needless to say, I had to cut my education short and leave the ones I loved the most. I never graduated from college, even though I had invested three and a half years into it. My dream of becoming a jour- nalist, following in my father's footsteps, were cut short, and my ambitions were put on hold. I had no choice but to leave every- thing behind and start a brand new life for myself. Arriving at the airport, however, made me realize I was in a completely differ- ent world. There was that language barrier. I did speak other languages, but English was not one of Topics of Truth Compliments Pastor Jessie M. Jones 762-7963 The Silversmith Let-me tell you about the silversmith. This gen- tleman went down to the silversmith's shop and was so amazed at the workman- ship of the silversmith. He made an image and then he started going over it and polishing it. He would look at it and then he would work on it some more. The gentleman asked him, "How do you know when 7" this is perfected. The silversmith replied, "When it gets to where that I can see my reflection in . , . ....... this, ag'if I was looking in a mirror, then, it is perfect- ed." Well, let's learn a lesson from the workmanship of the silversmith. My ques- tion is, when we go about our daily chores and meet- ing with people and having a conversation, can Jesus see his reflection in us? And can they see the reflection of Him in us? If not, we probably need to say, "Lord you're the sil- versmith and I need to be polished some more so that The Thrift Store 16629 Broad Street - St. Paul Furniture, DVD's, Winter Coats and more - " -+  a" : ' - 4 --:-" Tues-Fri 10-5; Saturday 10-3 Here to serve Hamilton Pharmacy & Couch Home Medical Our pharmacy will compete with the big boys!

I felt dumb not knowing what to say when asked if I had something to claim or if I came to the U.S. for business or pleas- ure. I never felt so deaf not understanding. From that moment on, I was deter- mined to learn English, and fast. I had the stamina to acquire knowledge and the intention of obtaining a college degree, but, being a foreigner, I learned that education was going to cost me an amount I was not able to afford. So I went to work, hoping to save enough money. Things did not work out the way I hoped they would. (To be contin- ued...) You can read the rest of Gladys's story in next week's paper.
