Can one be grateful for anything?

I've been having difficulty feeling gratitude towards cold and soulless companies who's primary goal is to make money. Although they've allowed humans to cooperate together to build amazing things – the internet, airplanes, smartphones – I'm fixated on the harm the companies have caused and I start to question whether even these "amazing things" have been good for humanity.

Which leads me to the question – can you be grateful towards anything? A horrible upbringing? A bloody historical event?

Can I be grateful to the elites that organized the building of the pyramids with slaves? Or am I to be grateful for the slaves themselves?

Is being grateful simply trying to focusing on the positive, no matter what it is?
