We have our dreams; we have our own life; we need to fight for ourselves. Therefore, we are faaaar away from home, far away.
There is a video clip, wide spread on renren--the words from your parents moved you most. Parents are all similar across the country. "Do you have enough money?" ...
Last month, I had my eye glasses broken. It is really expensive to have one pair here and there was a friend who was going to come back to US two weeks afterward. What a chance to save money! I asked my mom to get one pair for me and send it to my friend. I talked to Karen, saying I am waiting for my eye glass. She said, I guess being proud of herself, she had long passed the time when she could go to her parents for help. Well, for us, parents are always parents. We are trying to be independent, but we have been, we are, and we always be kids of our parents. Their love, their concern, and their care won't cease never. Sometime, when it becomes our time to take care of our parents, we can still ask for support, probably only spiritual, from them. It is really difficult to explain everything to her--culture difference is so obvious. I only said, the parent-kid relationship is more close in our culture.
There should be another long story, describing all the different altitude I found. In short, their parent are their parents, someone else. We are saying the car of my family, or even my car, while they are saying their parents' car. They don't like staying at parents' home, because it is not theirs, and it is not comfortable--maybe because of too many kids. For us, parents' home is the real place which can be called "home". Well, at least for not married kids. Home is always home. Never could it be replaced.
Yesterday, I was surfing on 163, and read a topic discussion about "what are your parents doing when you are far away from home?" What are they doing?
I know they always clean my room for me; they make and store my favorite food for me whenever possible; they look for every possible chance to send some good to me. Whenever they have some food which I like, they will tell me in regret on the phone, that I am not at home. 
When I am at home, I know they spend a lot of time taking care of me. Now, when I live on the other side of the earth, how do they kill the time?
I am now, fighting for my future, thousand miles away. Or more precisely, in the name of my future. My parents are left alone at home. One child only. Then who looks after parents? miss home, miss parents.
Remember this saying: Trees prefer calm but the wind will not subside; son wants his parents, does not wait. Work hard and try to get them asap.
