Dick Clark stood as an avatar of rock 'n' roll virtually from its birth and, until his death on April 18, 2012 at age 82, as a cultural touchstone for boomers and their grand kids alike.   His identity as "the world's oldest teenager" became strained in recent years, as time and infirmity caught up with his enduring boyishness. But he owned New Year's Eve after four decades hosting his annual telecast on ABC from Times Square.

And as a producer and entertainment entrepreneur, he was a media titan: his Dick Clark Productions supplied movies, game shows, beauty contests and more to TV, and, for a time in the 1980s, he boasted programs on all three networks.

Discussion about gay teen suicide has swelled in the US and accross the world after the death of 14-year-old New York native Jamey Rodemeyer, who reportedly took his own life following years of cruel taunts from peers over his sexual orientation.  Who is to blame? What needs to be done about the problem?  Community of Lights has been a strong supporter of the Trevor Project for the prevention of gay teen age suicide. Jamey recorded a "It Get's Better" message on Youtube four months before taking his life. In his May recording, Jamey had said: "Just love yourself and you're set. And I promise you, It'll get better."
