Neither gratitude nor appreciation has anything to do with rejecting what is wrong, censuring what is bad, exposing the ills that afflict society in order to remedy them. When our parents are wrong, we say they are wrong; when past generations committed mistakes, we say they had made mistakes. For saying this, neither are we ungrateful to them nor disrespectful to their memory.
    Graciano Lopez-Jaena
