Описание
During her devastating childhood in post-war Greece and two decades of emotional, physical and sexual abuse, Angela Mattox grew up wondering who she was. Clinging to her dream of emigrating to America, a chance meeting with an American serviceman turned Angela's life around when they moved to the United States and got married. Arriving at JFK airport amid the chaos caused by Dr. Martin Luther King's assassination, Angela struggled to find her place in her new country. The serviceman abandoned her after their marriage crumbled, and she soon found herself in a second chaotic marriage with a Vietnam War veteran. Angela worked three dead-end jobs to make ends met until she found her true callings in life: volunteering with war vets and selling New Orleans-style sno cones. Angela set up shop in a trailer situated in a mall parking lot, and seventy-five flavors and 3.5 million sno cones later, she was living her own American dream. Today, she is known as the "Sno Cone Lady" of St. Louis, Missouri, and has been active in the Jefferson Barracks VA Hospital for the last ten years.
