He- H/A/M?
"His" = "He" = same person?
Mother= H/A/F?
Cried= actual tears?
Were the people shocked that these two cried?
Were the people shocked by whatever made the two cry?
Did more people cry?
"Shocked" refers to the emotional feeling, right? Or something to do with electricity? Or the medical condition of "shock"?

Just covering my bases

Mother's crying: actual tears?
His crying: actual tears?

BTW, Shez, I'm glad that you understood the "He is, at present" to mean that he is presently an adult. I was thinking... presently male? But wasn't at one time? LOL- long day.

She cried because what would have been a happy memory for her would be ruined by the association. He cried, of course, because, because he was a baby. And millions of people were shocked by the attack.
