Andrei believes he has found purpose in life again and, after paying the Rostovs several visits, proposes marriage to Natasha. Accessed 10, During her near-nervous breakdown, Pierre emerges as her comforter and their love is implied. Hockfield sees a water crisis as one of the greatest threats to human health and well-being.
