This is the 3rd part of Lily’s 4-part series on Family Unit and the Effects from Trauma. Lily Sanders has an unfiltered conversation with Bridget and Jack Crippen, who are Conor Crippen’s siblings. Hear why they had to learn how to recreate their relationships post-trauma.
They have gone through their own trauma watching their brother lying in a coma for 3 weeks, and then waking to a situation they could never have imagined would ever happen. Only, it did happen, and it did become their current situation. Then miraculously Conor wakes, and has a new challenge which is to relearn how to utilize all functions of living. His siblings tell us what this was like, and their different perspectives then and now. This is a beautiful story of family unity, love of siblings, pain, and peace.
Conor says, “The beauty of my experience was the beauty of the simple.” Bridget speaks of his brother Conor as the lighthouse for them all during their time of adversity and even now. And Jack lovingly admits that it’s not easy to get over what he and Conor have been through. But the memories he has of Conor that he enjoys the most are of the recent. Because they developed the new relationship and moved past the hardship.
All perfect examples of how we can all go Beyond The Current Situation!
