Miss Danielle you help guide us everyday as we in the Navy serve to make sure this tragedy never happens again. Your passing was not for nothing as you have become a member of our family now and we honor you by standing watch to always keep America free and bring to justice those that would do us harm. Thank you for your sacrifice.

I just saw Open Your Heart on the OWN and saw the man (maybe Danielle's father I'm not sure) holding the sign poster of Danielle leaving a memorial service. He touched me so much that I had to pause the channel to read the name on the poster...Danielle. I googled her name and was led to this wonderful site. We will never forget 9/11.

Today was the first time I went to Ground Zero. As a child my family moved to Italy but I never forgot where I was born. With infinite pain I watched what was happening to my homeland on 9/11 . I always wanted to go to Ground Zero to say a prayer and today I went. While I was walking around I noticed a woman dressed in blue and a very tall man who were crying and my heart stopped and I prayed that God would ease their pain. The name they were caressing was Danielle Kousoulis. Whoever they are and Danielle's family are in my prayers tonight. I am so sorry for your loss may God bless you and give you peace.

Danielle,
I'll always remember you I'm so blessed to be one of the ones who knew you I never got the chance to tell you this but your the reason I started to have faith in myself. You are the reason I wake up and go to sleep everyday. You tought me how to swim but most of all you helped me accept the loss of my sister Katlin and I know you and Katlin are looking down on me Danielle Last night I spent about 10 minutes talking to you and I don't know why but I reached up for you and I guess it's because I was wanting you to take me to heaven but I'm still here because of you Danielle you see the best there is in me and I can't wait to see you again
I LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH DANIELLE!

We just visited the 9-11 Memorial. I took a picture of Danielle's name and prayed for her surviving family and friends. She was a hero to all of us! Even though I did not know her I am touched by her and your sacrifice...and care about your loss. Blessings from our Lord and Savior Who is the only real comfort for us as we grieve.

IN LOVING MEMORY OF DANIELLE KOUSOULIS

Dear loving family of Danielle

My name is Kendra from Stafford High School. We have been talking about 9/11, like the tragedy death, fire and smoke.I now know what really happened that day but before I didn't know much because I was very young when it happened. I saw many videos of what happened to people, the Twin Towers and the Pentagon and what people had to go through that day trying to get themselves and family to safety.

That was such a sad day because many families were broken and destroyed and many lives were lost. Whatever happened to your loved ones I am truly deeply sorry. So I am typing this letter to Danielle s family to give sympathy to you all. I am glad I was able to do this.

Sincerely
Kendra from Mr.Holland's 1st block class

MAY GOD CONTINUE TO PROTECT DANIELLE'S FAMILY. I REMEMBER YOU FROM STOY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND YOU WERE ONE OF THE NICEST PEOPLE I MET WALKING HOME FROM SCHOOL ONE DAY. I KNOW YOUR IN HEAVEN SAFE AND SOUND NOW. SLEEP WITH THE ANGELS!! YOU WERE TAKEN AWAY WAY TOO SOON!! R.I.P AND GOD BLESS!!
