'I Love You Guys' Foundation director urges impr­ovements

John Micheal Keyes lost daughter in 2006 school shooting

SAN ANTONIO - John Michael Keyes daughter was shot and killed by a gunman who entered her high school in September of 2006.
Keyes now operates a foundation dedicated to making sure others know how to react in crisis.
The "I Love You Guys" Foundation, the name taken from a text message Keyes' daughter sent during the ordeal, provides free research material to students, parents, and first responders alike.
"There was a void that we saw where students, staff, and first responders didn't share a common vocabulary during a crisis," Keyes said.
Because of that, Keyes developed one – Lockout, Lockdown, Evacuate and Shelter.
Keyes' goal is to provide a succinct action plan that everyone knows how to follow, a la "Stop, Drop and Roll."
"If we teach a kids from the time their in Kindergarten a uniform set of rules, they don't have to learn anything new and they can learn and train in the same way everytime."
