This poem by Sienna Mae Heath is dedicated to Candice Sero who was trampled by police on horses in Ottawa on the evening of Friday, February 18, 2022 at the Freedom Convoy, which sought to defeat the vaccine mandates across Canada and inspired unifying protests around the world. Candace “Candy” Sero is reportedly a Mohawk elder who has lived in the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory in Hastings County, Ontario. She survived the incident while suffering from a broken clavicle. It has been brought to attention that she was holding a white shawl, resembling a white flag on her walking assist device—a symbol of peace.
