Now I look back and feel very good about all I have done and all of the lives I have touched. As I wrote this book, I often cried for joy or laughed or became amazed at what I had done. Thank God for guiding me and leading me, albeit sometimes forcefully, down the path you had planned for me.

It’s amazing how one simple little action can completely change one’s life—and how unexpected the outcome can be… Author Fred Rosene takes readers on a nostalgic journey through his experiences and how he began Making a Difference.
In this motivational and autobiographical account, the author harks back to the earliest things he could remember from his growing years to the fateful day that forever changed his life. From a normal young man with bright hopes for the future, Rosene became a paraplegic with no clue what would come next. He had lost hope for the future and struggled through pain, therapy, and starting over without the use of his legs. His disability made him lose direction, but as it turned out, it was all part of God’s plan.
In Making a Difference, readers will discover Rosene’s eventful life, from his earliest memories to his retirement at age sixty. His journey didn’t end there. He was involved and running a youth drop-in center called Beginnings. He also volunteered for twenty years in the Palm Beach School District where he touched many lives and made a difference.
“It has been an incredible experience to look back over my childhood and youth and remember how inferior I felt and how hopeless I felt when I lost the use of my legs. After my accident, I never thought about what would be next because I never thought there would be a next,” reveals the author. “Now I look back and feel very good about all I have done and all of the lives I have touched. As I wrote this book, I often cried for joy or laughed or became amazed at what I had done. Thank God for guiding me and leading me, albeit sometimes forcefully, down the path you had planned for me.”
