Olympics 2012 opening ceremony goes over stunningly

The opening ceremony, currently occurring in London, has gone along VERY smoothly. The firework extravaganzas, the trapeze acts, surprise appearances by stunning people of power, including the beloved queen, the crowned prince and his wife, and much more. We personally loved the jet pack extravaganza and the aerobic stunts with the purple fireworks. We are very happy to witness this first hand, live. Feel free to tune in at 8:00 eastern time, 6:00 western to view the spectacle. And happy opening ceremony to all! The beautiful lights of the opening ceremony

The Opening Ceremony For The London 2012 Summer Olympics

The opening ceremony will be held on July 27, 2012. We are currently unaware of whom will be holstering the torch to it's final destination, but we have reason to belove it may be the chairman of UN from South Korea. We are very excited, and honored, to be covering the entire thing this year, you can stay tuned to our section of coverage as the games progress. As far as whom we want to see leave with the most golds this year? We hold a couple of countries dearly to our hearts ;). But we do wish luck to all athletes of all nations. Cheers, The Order Of The Iron Phoenix Team

So how did something rooted in such violence become a peace sign? Well… that we can’t tell you for sure. Nero's Cross Let’s move on to the second image that we can immediately recognize as a symbol of peace. After all, aren't symbols worth a million words?
