Burhnam's mother left her very long ago. Realistically, i would be okay with her reaction if her loved ones passed away recently. If i were her, I would stand there without crying, yet being curious as to how that happened with past memories flashing in. The show is either too dark or too white. The directors need to find the right grey area ( Which was most appreciated in DS9). I mean its not so hard to think of a situation in first person.
