Peter S. Pelullo experienced sexual abuse as a child. He wrote a memoir on his experience and his path to recovery. Today, he works to assist adult survivors of sexual abuse.
My name is Peter S. Pelullo and I am an adult survivor of childhood sexual abuse. While I was sexually molested by two trusted sons of my parent’s friends at the age of 7, I would not face the devastation of those attacks from 1959 until a life altering event would force me into recovery in 2007. I write extensively about this event in my memoir Betrayal and the Beast: One man’s journey through childhood sexual abuse, sexual addiction and recovery as well as the nervous ticks, addictions and maligned human interactions with every person that came into my life; all of these life altering events were the direct result of being so sexually violated by my perpetrators.
My journey in healing compelled me to start the Let Go… Let Peace Come In Foundation 18 months into the recovery process to create a platform and voice for the millions of adult survivors in our country and throughout the world. Shortly thereafter I would create a survivor fund to assist men and women to receive the mental healthcare that I had the ability to receive. I did not expect the response that came to the foundation’s website. The Foundation’s site now has had visits from all 50 states (thousands of cities), 141 countries (over half the world), and has been read in 38 languages.
In November 2011, when the Sandusky case broke, being the only foundation in the country that subsidized therapeutic recovery sessions, we were contacted to help some of the young men from the Penn State tragedy. Today we are assisting two of the eight young men from the trial and one of the seven that came forward following the indictment.
Also in the year of 2011 my journey would bring me to the front door steps of the number one public health school in the world, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The foundation is now aligned in a common goal with this esteemed institution to prevent childhood sexual abuse and the harm and suffering it inflicts and to improve treatment for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. With one out of three girls and one out of four boys (Beverly Engle, (2000). Families in Recovery: Healing the Damage of Childhood Sexual Abuse (2nd ed.). Los Angeles: LowellHouse.) (http://www.malesurvivor.org/news-releases.html) being sexually violated before the age of 18 bringing the approximate total of adult survivors in our country to north of 60 million, (Doak, Melissa J. 2011. Child Abuse and Domestic Violence.New York,NY: Gale Cengage Learning.) I am hopeful that the research by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health will tell men and women it wasn’t their fault and they need and should seek the mental healthcare to live the life that they were meant to live.
