In the aftermath of the Chinese earthquake, tens of thousands of young volunteers flood to the quake zone to help, taking everyone by surprise. The young volunteers are from the first generation in China to grow up as only children or "little emperors."

This hour on Here on Earth: Radio Without Borders, Jean Feraca and her guests take a fresh look at China's young generation.
