Veteran Miami-Dade County schoolteacher and dance instructor Tawana Akins is no stranger to the agony of gun violence.
She has lost four relatives to gunshot wounds including her 6-year-old great-nephew King Carter, who was slain while walking to the candy store in February 2016.
Akins uses music, dance and poetry to cope with her pain. “There is so much violence. We need to save our kids,” she said.
