Yekaterinburg children create time capsule for peace

Children in Yekaterinburg have written special letters to future parents on a 467 meter long scroll.

Seven-hundred children in the Urals region inscribed messages of love, peace and harmony on a 467 meter long scroll made up of small paper ribbons, the Voice of Russia reports.

The chain was created in public as a flash mob event.

The messages were written in Russian and English and will be buried for 10 years near the city's monument to Curiosity.

The event was held in memory of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, with the goal of delivering a message against extremism.

The project was recorded by Guinness World Records as the "Longest Message to the World," according to Mir66.
