Not sure about this analogy

Speaking at the NPM, Rita Ferrone urged conventioneers to keep looking ahead:
"We've come a long way the past 50 years," she said, but cautioned them to "remember Lot's wife," who was turned into a pillar of salt for looking back at the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Is this really a good way to think about this past? As Catholics? Hmmm. In fact, this attitude seems like a direct contradiction to the whole sacred music framework. It was not a good thing when the past was (temporarily) destroyed, and the past was no Sodom.

Maybe my interpretation of her remark is wrong.
