Don't Worry About A 'Trumpocalypse' Just Say Your Prayers and Trust in God

According to various news outlets it seems doomsday prepping which is defined as "the act of stockpiling food and other essentials in a reinforced, often under-ground shelter," is gaining popularity among the rich, especially those who are overly nervous and pessimistic about the future.  A Texas businessman, Gary Lynch apparently can't keep up with all the orders he's receiving for his bomb shelter that is made of solid stainless steel. It actually is a luxury "underground bunker" which contains all the necessary amenities to sustain one in case the end of the world happens.......or the world falls into chaos (God forbid!)
A fact I find amusing is that some of the customers tell Mr. Lynch that they are nervous about a "Trumpocalypse" or "Trumpnado," who knows if they are serious or not. I don't think President Trump wants the world to end or would do anything to hasten that, that would certainly ruin his business empire, which I'm sure he wants his adorable grandchildren to inherit.
I can't believe people would spend hundreds of thousands of dollars, even millions of dollars on something they most probably will never use. It certainly is consumerism and consumption gone amok.
It's so ridiculous, in my opinion, there are so many worthy, noble projects that the super rich could invest in, they could do so much good with money they are spending on a bunker that most probably will remain empty.
So what does the average person of faith do, faced with the fact they can't afford or don't want a luxury underground bunker, well I know what I do.
I pray for the future of the world, for our leaders, that they make common sense decisions, that they rely on expert advice and opinions and real data and lead with wisdom and knowledge. I pray that God will forgive our foolishness and lack of faith. I pray the next generation straightens out all this misunderstanding and chaos and rids the world of radical evil doers, who have caused so much turmoil, hate and pain, so that there can be a lasting, world peace, where good can flourish.
I pray God acts and helps the good people of the world destroy evil from the face of the earth. When I get to Heaven that's certainly the first thing I'm going to discuss with God, given the chance.....it will go something like this......."Let's get going, its time for evil to be destroyed, enough is enough!
