Living on earth with the “drum major instinct”. The drum major instinct is a desire to be the first. Martin Luther King came from Mark the 10th chapter using verses 35-40 and 42-44 during his “drum major instinct” sermon. Although James and John were making specific request of the master, they were also frowned upon for making the request in verse 41 (KJV).

Eileen Foster was the Executive Vice President of Fraud Risk Management at Countrywide, and later served in the role of Senior Vice President of the Mortgage Fraud Investigation Division at Bank of America after the two companies merged (Foster, n.d.). It was her responsibility to investigate mortgage origination fraud and reporting suspicious activity to regulators and the company’s Board of Directors. After several years of seeing a lot of suspicious activity and blatant acts of fraud she found that the company was playing party to this activity. Any employee who reported fraud and wrongdoing to Employee Relations were being transferred, demoted, harassed or terminated.

Out of all of Jackson’s work four of her short stories show some extreme similarities in her writing, and those four are “The Tooth”,” Island”,” Cauliflower in her hair”, and “The Lottery”. All of these stories start out ordinary, and end up taking a turn for the worst rather quickly, which can relate to life and how quickly life can change for the good or bad in the matter of seconds. The same can be said about how all of her characters in these stories seem to just be having a bit of bad luck, which makes the story turn for the worst. Jackson is very clever in how she does this, she never comes right
