There really isn't much I can do half-way around the world. Yes, it is about half-way, because there's a ten hour time difference.
When I discuss the situation with friends, I keep hearing that no matter how close everyone lives, the responsibilities, burden always fall unevenly between siblings. It's not fair of course, but that's what happens. And when there are thousands of miles in between and legal and cultural differences it's even more difficult to share.
Yes, life isn't fair.
