What was supposed to be a symbol of peace had a tragic ending. Two of the three doves released during the World Cup opening ceremony instantly flew to their deaths.
Errrr, think one of those doves is dead already. Flew straight into stand and went down.— Jonathan Wilson (@jonawils)June 12, 2014

But not to worry, one of the doves found safety in the press box, so hope for world peace is still alive and well.
