When musician and Paradise resident Skip Culton’s daughter looked at the sky outside of their home and likened it to the apocalypse, he knew it was time to get out of there. As a songwriter for the last 20 years, Culton explained the therapeutic nature that writing songs provides. Waking up one Saturday morning with lyrics in his head, Culton recorded it on his cell phone in hopes of using his music as a tool to heal others. “I thank God that I had escaped with my life, that my family and my friends are all alright / When I remember how the day turned into night, I say another prayer for Paradise” are just a few touching lines of his song, ”A Prayer for Paradise.” Being a Tzu Chi cash card recipient himself, Culton felt his prayers were heard and answered. He encourages people to feel inspired to help others if they can.
