"Through the smoke and burning ashes, I remember that fateful day."
- Larry Cappetto
I write songs when I am inspired. This real life event on December 1, 1958 really touched my heart and my life. 92 young children and 3 nuns perished that fateful day in Chicago over 60 years ago. These were some of the best lyrics I have ever written. It is my sincere hope many will watch this song and shed a tear for so many innocent lives which were taken from us far too early. This is my tribute to the young lives lost and their families.
WATCH, "Angels Too Soon," a beautiful haunting song written by Larry Cappetto, inspired by the 1958 fire in Chicago at Our Lady of the Angels Catholic School.
