When doves cry

Prince, in his 1984 song “When Doves Cry“, wrote that “when we scream at each other, this is what it sounds like when doves cry.”

That may be the case, but recently there was a real life experience of doves crying, I suppose.

According to the Washington Post, Pope Francis, along with two children, released doves as a sign of peace. The doves were immediately attacked by a seagull and a crow.

I grew up near seagulls and know they can be feisty creatures. But to attack a dove…of peace…released by Pope Francis…and two children? Let’s give peace a chance, please.
