|“||I lost a friend today. And her sacrifice is an all too familiar reminder that every single day matters. Every single one of us matters. Every single one. Tonight, we will inscribe on the leaves of this tree the names of your loved ones who have fought and fallen, those who have died and deserve our remembrance. And so, like my friend, they'll live here, on the Liberty Tree, forever.||”|
— Tom Mason's dedication speech
The Liberty Tree is a memorial for all those lost during the invasion. Loved ones place personal effects of the branches in honor of them.
