When Even Angels Wept

March 18, 1937 began like any other day for the school children of New London, Texas. Thirteen minutes before the last bell was to dismiss, 293 of those children had fallen victim to the worst school tragedy in American history. Accumulation of leaked natural gas produced one quick and massive explosion heard for miles. Nothing remained from what was once considered the richest rural school in the world. Only the few surviving children and their tears endured. At that moment, the world knew a generation had died. When Even Angels Wept is a documentation using actual words of those who lived to tell their story from that fateful day. Year after year may pass, but their ageless recollections still stand the test of time. See the film trailer: When Even Angels Wept
