Recording Artist Sam Llanas and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to Participate in Oct. 23 St. Sebastian School Character Education Kick-Off Assembly

I know I said I would be reviewing the new Killing Joke disc, and I would be laying off the Sam Llanas promotion.  But, in light of the recent tragedy emanating from Canada regarding the suicide of a young woman by the name of Amanda Todd as the result of repeated bullying, both online and in school, I felt the following press release from the Llanas camp was not only timely, but in light of the event with the late Miss Todd, necessary.
First read the press release from Mr. Llanas’ management, then please view the entire video embedded in this post.  WARNING: The video from Miss Todd is graphic, and for those under the age of 16, should be viewed with a parent or guardian as it does contain some graphic language.
MILWAUKEE, WI – St. Sebastian School will host its annual Character Education kick-off assembly with two Milwaukee area icons – recording artist Sam Llanas and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 1:30 p.m. The assembly will be held in St. Sebastian Church, 5400 W. Washington Blvd., Milwaukee.
Llanas will perform his song Bully on the Corner” and speak to the students about the effects of bullying. He also will perform other hits from his musical library.
“We share many anti-bullying messages with our students and emphasize the importance of good, positive behavior,” said St. Sebastian Principal Paul Hohl. “When I heard Sam’s song at a concert this summer, I thought this would be a great connection for our students. Having a local, contemporary and successful entertainer relate his story with our students is a wonderful way to launch our Character Education program for the school year.”
Mayor Barrett has addressed St. Sebastian students on several occasions. A graduate of St. Sebastian School, Barrett’s four children have also attended the school.
“We are blessed to have the entire Barrett family in the St. Sebastian community,” said Hohl. “Having Milwaukee’s premier civic leader address and visit our students helps reinforce the message that bullying will not be tolerated in our school or in our community. We appreciate all that Mayor Barrett has done to support our Character Education Program.”
St. Sebastian offers four-year-old kindergarten through 8th grade and has 360 students enrolled this year. Its Character Education Program has been recognized by the National Catholic Education Association.
