So BP says it is so, and the underwater pictures say it is so. It appears the oil well that has been gushing tens of thousands of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico has now been capped.
And the cap seems to be working.
Dare we believe? Dare we hope?
It is hard to believe after nearly three months of gushing that it is now contained.
I am watching with skepticism.
But I am also watching with hope that it is true and the healing can begin.
