    He spoke about using his imagination to escape the pain:

    “I could go to this park [in my mind] that my mother and my aunt had taken me to. … I’m there in this park running and playing, and it was such a good day. So, every time somebody was doing something to me that was horrible, that was awful, I could go to this park in my mind until it was over.”

    He wept when Oprah asked him what he would say to the little boy left behind? “I would say, ‘It’s going to be all right.”

    Perry wasn’t the only who cried today, he brought tears to Oprah’s eyes by thanking her for all she’s done for viewers for 25 years.
