On the morning Of September 11th, he heard commotion outside his apartment, mostly police and firetrucks, city noise he thought. When he turned on his computer and saw that a plane had hit the World Trade Center he grabbed a few cameras and some film and headed downtown. Leaving his apartment that day, Bert could not have predicted that he would be so close to the largest terrorist attack on US soil. This is a day he would never forget, no matter how hard he tried.
