Mix the gelatin with the boiling water for two minutes, then add cold water and ice to make a cup of gelatin mixture. Remove excess ice, then whisk in the whipped topping, and stir in the chopped strawberries. Refrigerate the mixture for 20 to 30 minutes or until thick, then pour it into the graham cracker crust. Place the pie in the refrigerator for six hours, and add sliced berries to each piece before serving.
